Finland’s Arctic reindeer herders get reality show


Photo Esko Puikko, YLE.Plans are underway to create a reality TV show about the lives of reindeer herders in Finland’s Arctic. The Promotion Centre for Audiovisual Culture (AVEK) has committed 7,500 euros to produce the pilot episode.

The production company Standup etcetera filmed the  the show’s first episode in July in north-western Lapland.
