BBC Television interviewed and filmed MAYHEM during their show at the Slottsfjell festival in Tönsberg, Norway earlier this year. The footage is used for their affairs show, “This World.”
The first broadcast is now confirmed for November 24th 2005 on BBC 2 at 9pm. And it will most likely be picked up by BBC Worldwide and rebroadcast throughout the world later on. “This World” is the flagship of BBC when it comes to current affairs, and is regularly seen by two million people in Britain.
The program series asked MAYHEM for their documentary about extreme music around the world, because one part of the film includes the remarkable black metal scene of Norway. The goal of the documentary was to investigate some of the controversies surrounding Extreme Metal Music around the world and ask why extreme metal bands like MAYHEM are so popular.
