Video: Alexander Rybak – 14 days in Moscow before the ESC final in 2009

Tonight it is Eurovision Song Contest Final in Copenhagen, and that brings us memories from 5 years ago, when the Final of Eurovision was in Moscow and… you all know what happened back then. To make a symbolic celebration of the 5 years since Alexander’s victory, we’d like to introduce you to this documentary, made by NRK back in 2009, first broadcasted on 16.5.2009 as a pre-party for the final. So here it is in full HD and with English subs.

“BBC – This World. Norways massacre” – a BBC documentary. 2012

This is a video,  found on YouTube. It is a download  of the BBC-documentary “Norways massacre”, which has  been shown on national television in, so far,  United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

It describes the terror-events  in Norway in the summer of 2011, starting with the bomb-attack  in Oslo and the gun-massacre on young people at the AUF-summer-camp at Utøya  22.7. 2011, through interviews of survivors, relatives, police-officers, politicans, psychologists, journalists, lawyers and others.  Most of the speech is in english.

At  around  54 minutes into the program, there are recordings from the Rose-March in Oslo – the public demonstration against the terror-events –  with pictures  of Alexander, playing Bergrosa at Oslo City Square.
