NRK TV are visiting Samovarteateret

At the moment, a production team from NRK (Norwegian television channel) are visiting Samovarteateret in Kirkenes, to prepare the live streaming of the television programme «Norge nå» (Norway now). The live streaming will take place tonight at 20:25 o’ clock, and the topic will be about Russia.

Bente S. Andersen from Samovarteateret, Rune Rafaelsen, the mayor of Sør-Varanger, and Thomas Nilsen from The independent Barents Observer will be the guests of tonight’s show.

NRK writes about the topic; «Should we fear Russia? They are our greatest neighbour, actually 50 times bigger than Norway, and are very central in the world’s politics. Today «Norge nå» visits Kirkenes looking for answers; the city where Russia isn’t only a neighbouring country, but also a neighbourhood.»
