Newsletter reader Sue Wilson wrote to tell of a television program on Swedish television called "Allt för Sverige" (All for Sweden). The program features ten Americans who traveled to Sweden to search for their ancestors. It´s a competition, so the winner gets to meet his/her Swedish relatives.
Along the way, the Americans travel to different parts of Sweden and experience different things in Sweden and learn about their ancestors. The programs are mostly in English with a little Swedish introduction (sometimes also a bit of Swedish explanations during the show).
The first five episodes of "Allt för Sverige" are also available on YouTube. Unfortunately, YouTube attempts to block Americans from watching the programs on the Internet because of copyright issues. If you are in Sweden, you can easily view the episodes online. If you are anywhere else in the world and if you can establish a VPN (virtual private network) connection to Sweden, you can also watch the episodes on YouTube. I used a VPN to connect to a server in Stockholm and was then able to watch the episodes on YouTube without difficulty from the U.S.
NOTE: I described the use of a VPN in an earlier Plus Edition article, "How to Access Television Programs and Other Web Content from Other Countries and Simultaneously Foil Hackers" that is still available at http://eogn.com/wp/?p=22658 (a Plus Edition user name and password is required to read the article).
Three more episodes of "Allt för Sverige" have yet to be broadcast. You can view the first five episodes at:
