Apologies for the Break

It's a weekend and the year is 1996. The family has got comfortable on the sofa with popcorn and sweets at hand. The Saturday evening film has reached its climax when the main hero is about to rescue his loved one from imminent danger. The family is really getting excited and have all become involved in the story being played out on the TV screen. The youngster of the family holds his hand to his mouth and the dad gasps in disbelief when the hero loses his footing and almost falls to his death. At that critical moment the unbelievable happens. In a flash the family is pulled back to reality. The screen goes blank and then the words Afsakið hlé (Apologies for the Break) appear and the family knows that it will have to wait for an indeterminate length of time while the technicians at the broadcasting centre solve the problem. Ever since the State Radio (Ríkisútvarpið, RÚV  for short) was established in 1966 the words Afsakið hlé have been used to apologize to the Icelandic audience whenever there is a disruption in the broadcast due to technical problems. Today this rarely happens since the broadcasting equipment has improved considerably over the years.

Afsakið hlé

Það er helgi og árið er 1996. Fjölskyldan hefur komið sér vel fyrir í sófanum með popp og sælgæti í kjöltunni. Laugardagsmyndin hefur náð hápunkti og aðalsöguhetjan reynir í örvæntingu að bjarga ástinni sinni úr lífsháska. Mikil spenna ríkir meðal fjölskyldunnar sem lifir sig af einlægni inn í myndina. Unglingurinn ber hendur fyrir munn sér og pabbinn tekur andköf þegar söguhetjunni skrikar skyndilega fótur og er nánast dottin ofan af háhýsi. En þá gerist hið ótrúlega. Í einni svipan er öllum kippt yfir í raunveruleikann. Orðin Afsakið hlé standa á skjánum og fjölskyldan verður að bíða um óákveðinn tíma meðan tæknimenn sjónvarpsins leysa vandann.
