This week, Peter Greenberg Worldwide comes from The Thief hotel in Oslo, Norway, a cutting edge design hotel with a great story to tell. David Nikel, Author of Norway and Oslo travel guides (Moon Publications), talks about the wake-up call Oslo and the rest of the country received when The Thief hotel opened in the city and explains its role in modernizing what was once a Spartan approach to hospitality. Simon Calder, Senior Travel Editor at The Independent, discusses the issue of safely handling plane evacuations, concerns with the Federal Aviation Administration’s tests and theories behind why these tests haven’t been properly done. And Stein Olav Henrichsen, Director of The Munch Museum, discusses the event that made world news–the robbing of “The Scream” painting and the little-known stories behind it. There’s all this and more as Peter Greenberg Worldwide broadcasts from The Thief hotel in Oslo, Norway.
