The Secret Norwegian Volume One

 

Norway – one of the happiest places on earth? For many years, the Nordic countries have dominated the top spots on the UN’s ‘World Happiness Report’ but does living in one of the world’s happiest places mean its residents are the world’s happiest people or is there something hidden behind the facade of conformity? Anthony King sets out to uncover the truth behind the lauded ‘Nordic lifestyle’ by persuading 350 Norwegians to tell him about their lives. Almost without exception, they described how great it was to live in Norway. He listened politely... and then he asked them to tell him the truth. In fifteen months Anthony King amassed over 500,000 words of transcripts and hundreds of hours of recordings with the Prime Minister, doctors, teachers, students, scientists, hotel workers and people from all walks of life, of all ages. From Oslo, Tromso, Svalbard and a total of fifteen cities across Norway and from over fifty smaller locations including Sogndalstrand, Averoy, Romsdalen and more including to Sweden and Denmark. Read these conversations and see for yourself what life is really like in Norway, told by Norwegians in their own words. What they said WILL shock you.

The Secret Norwegian: Breaking the Curse of Janteloven - Documentary

For several years the Nordic countries have dominated the top spots on the UN's World Happiness Report. I decided to find out the truth behind the lauded "Nordic lifestyle" by persuading 350 Norwegians to tell me about their lives... on tape. Almost without exception, they described how great it was to live in Norway. I listened politely ... and then I asked them to tell me the truth. What they told me will shock you...

 

In 2019 I interviewed over 350 people in Oslo, Tromso, Svalbard and a total of fifteen cities across Norway. I also travelled to over 50 smaller locations, including Sogndalstrand, Averoy, Romsdalen and more. The conversations were recorded. I interviewed the Prime Minister, doctors, teachers, students, scientists, hotel workers and people from all walks of life. I persuaded them to tell me the truth of what life is like in Norway. Over 500,000 words of transcripts and hundreds of hours of recordings. All footage and conversations in this documentary were recorded by myself. Certain details of these edited excerpts have been disguised and answers replaced by voice actors. The audio distortion and drop off is inherent to the recordings and is necessary to retain their anonymity. My book series 'The Secret Norwegian' contains the original disguised and redacted transcripts. I hope that somebody daring to reveal the truth will make it easier to reject the unspoken ‘rules’ of oppression: Janteloven... not only in Norway but in the whole of Scandinavia.

Michael Jackson and Classical Music

Michael Jackson included opera, choral works, orchestral, symphonies, traditional folk songs, patriotic marches and fanfares in his shows and over twenty classical works in his albums, broadcasts and music videos. Anthony King takes you on an in-depth journey through Jackson’s use of classical music with world exclusive reveals. Michael Jackson incorporated pieces into his live shows: from the great Beethoven and Bach, to Carl Orff and various contemporary classical composers.
