Scandimania

Scandimania is a three-part Channel 4 documentary series hosted by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, traveling around three Scandinavian countries: Sweden, Denmark and Norway, which have been voted the happiest countries in the world. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall starts his adventure in Sweden, meeting a member of ABBA and going hunting in the woods. Then Hugh lands in Denmark, which the United Nations has declared the 'happiest country in the world'. In Copenhagen, he cooks with Rene Redzepi, owner and head chef at Noma, and practises his high diving in a swimming pool in the city center harbor. Finally, Hugh visits Norway, the 4th richest country in the world, where he tries some smoked sheep's head, visits an open prison that looks like a holiday camp, and goes diving for sea urchins.
