Nordkalotten365 Der Ingen Skulle Tru 330 Squadron Safari Movies Notes
Here are some English subtitles for a variety of officially licensed TV programs and movies which have been released on bittorrent. It started as a temporary repository of my translations of NRK (Norwegian TV) programs, and has expanded to include movies. As of 2014, sadly, NRK's BitTorrent servers are offline, so it can be a long slog to fetch episodes. Patience!

In this series, entitled "Where no one would believe that someone could live", hard-to-reach places throughout Norway
are revealed to be thriving homes for the people who love it there.
The NRK site has English subtitles (created by others) for Episode 1, Episode 3, and Episode 4.
"In the wilderness west of Femunden live Milda and Klas Femund in their lodge alone. When Klas grew up, fishing was a livelihood. They now take in tourists, serving hot food in the barn, tell stories about mother Olave raising kids on the farm, and more stories from the time Femundshytta was in use by a copper smelting plant in Røros. Great times arrive when plenty of horse-drawn sleighs on the road to Rørosmartnan pulls into the settlement with song and fun."
"She lives in a house in the woods at Homevassevje (Home Water Evje), in an old guardhouse by the defunct Setesdalsbanen train line. She is a painter, and in summer she is out and painting, thriving in boots and nothing else. Were it not for the snakes, she'd chuck the boots too. Kirsten Lundsgaardvig is Danish and colorful. She is also Catholic, and incorporates that into her latest oils. In addition, she lives together with thirteen workers. They're all dead, of course, but are good company just the same."
"Severin Rønes is 25 years old and says that he is like most young people. But he lives down on a roadless, depopulated farm at Storfjorden on Sunnmøre. Here he lives as a sheep farmer and hunter. He hunts deer, fox, and traps weasels and stoats. And operates a fish farm. Last winter his boat was destroyed during a big storm, which later destroyed the pier as well. But Severin didn't give up. Instead he cleared the way to carry on the cultural heritage of the farm and its life."

330 Squadron is a Norwegian search/rescue/medical helicopter force. They perform a vertical rescue of two stranded mountain climbers from a sheer cliff face. And when a 10-year old girl is lost in mountainous forest, the squadron joins a 350-member search team for two days.
The team searches for an emergency beacon in the North Sea, to fetch a hypothermic, unresponsive boater from a liferaft. They perform a steep-slope pickup of an injured, trapped skier, and search for a 16-year old girl, lost in the mountains, both day and night.
The Squadron team volunteers to attempt a hazardous recovery from a treacherous sheer mountain wall, only to make a shocking discovery. A Russian climbing team videotapes the action. Questions about the mission haunt one team member for a year after the emergency call. (If you watch only one episode, I highly recommend this one.)
The 330 Squadron transport a critically ill patient between hospitals during snow conditions, introduce some of the engineering and technical staff, and revisit a hairy ocean rescue of an injured tugboat operator during high seas.
The Squadron retrieves a injured paraglider pilot from an icy waterfall, performs training missions, inspects a winter-season base, cleans their machine, and goes into Russian territory for the crew of a cargo ship crushed on coastal rocks.
The team retrieves an injured man from a high-speed single-car wreck, picks up a huntress lost in the mountains, encounters a suspicious fuel leak in their helicopter, and performs the sad task of retrieval of a body from an avalanche.
The 330s engage in more training, and revisit rescuing hundreds from a sinking passenger liner. Two grandparents and a 9-year old are rescued when they're fogged in in rugged terrain. And the 330 crewmembers visit a refueling depot outpost where bears frequently interfere with a family's staple food supply: seals. Blatant swimming in the frozen ocean is pursued.
The team is called to the scene of a Russian base jumper stranded at 500 feet up a rock face. Two injured boat crewmembers need rescue in high seas. The HRS rescue command center is featured. The sinking of a high speed boat with 80 passengers onboard triggers one of Norway's largest ocean rescues, revisited by the crew and affected passengers. And Roy plays guitar.
"This episode of NRK's Safari is entirely devoted to the artist Anne Katrine Dolven. Dolven has great international success and has exhibited in over 30 countries around the world. This year, she completed her first self-portrait, "Contours of the skin" after she found a forgotten film roll in a tray. The film was shot on a winter day in 1989, when she stood naked on a balcony right on the border with East Germany. Guards with machine guns witnessed it all. This year, 20 years later, she filmed herself in the nude on top of a mountain in Lofoten. These two films, put together, form this self-portrait."
