OSLO, Norway, Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Norway's state-run TV channel announced it will air an hours-long program featuring eight people aiming to beat a knitting world record.

The NRK network said the knitting attempt will begin at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1 and the channel will chronicle the team of eight's attempt to beat a "from sheep to sweater" knitting record -- 4 hours, 51 seconds -- set by an Australian team, The Local.no reported Tuesday.

"We have already earmarked the lamb to be shorn, and started to put together the team of eight people who will be trying to break the knitting record: one to sheer, while the seven remaining must spin and knit as fast as they can," producer Lise-May Spissoy said.

The network described the knitting program as part of its effort to bring "slow but noble television" to the airwaves. NRK previously aired a 12-hour program in February that depicted a fire being built and maintained.
