The three half-hour programmes, produced by Norwegian broadcaster NRK, introduce Norway, Oslo, the 39 contestants taking part in this year's music battle and gives you an exclusive peak behind the scenes of the biggest entertainment production of the year in Europe. The second episode of Eurovision Countdown exclusively shows how host Ian Wright was thrown out at the Heads of Delegation meeting in Oslo, back in March. During the meeting, representatives from all participating countries gathered to be briefed in detail about the upcoming event in May.
The traditional look back at the contest's rich history cannot be missed either.
