Region: Europe

NEW YORK (January 16, 2013)—Today TV2 will debut a new program called Vårt Lille Land. Hosted by journalists Gerhard Helskog and Tonje Steinsland, the program will air at 21:40 CET, and will feature a segment about the Oslo Freedom Forum (OFF).

The program highlights OFF's ability to gather some of the world’s most inspirational speakers and activists to promote freedom and respect for human rights. As Mr. Helskog argues in the introduction to the segment, “There are two things capable of moving the world: individuals and stories. When some individuals come with the right story, they can change the world.” The program features footage from the 2012 Oslo Freedom Forum as well as an interview with conference founder Thor Halvorssen.

The 2013 Oslo Freedom Forum is scheduled for May 13, 14, and 15. Updates can be found on Twitter @OsloFF and on Facebook.

Watch a preview for Vårt Lille Land. This episode will be broadcast again on Sunday, January 20, at 17:00 CET.
