"Six Degrees of Separation" with Ingrid & Kåre

NRK Norway 2017

Are all people on earth tied together through six acquaintances?

There is a theory called "Six Degrees of Separation". The theory claims that no human beings are more than six acquaintances away from each other, although we are now almost eight billion people on earth. Through a friend of a friend and so on, in six steps, you can thus be connected to anyone on the planet.

NRK is now testing this theory. Are we living in a world where we are more closely connected than we think, where "the others" are only some acquaintances away?

From wilderness to celebrity, Ingrid Gjessing Linhave and Kåre Magnus Bergh put the theory to test from Mongolian steppe.

From Salzburg the journey continues to distant Mongolia. Where a traditional wrestling called “Bökh” is a national sport and it is as popular as swinging in Switzerland.

Here they don’t fight barefoot, and so in the capital Ulaanbaatar, Chrigu receives the traditional wrestling outfit and his size 51 boots which impressed the local shoemakers.

Fully equipped Chrigu heads to the western province of Mongolia where the country’s most powerful wrestlers are from, they continue their journey in a small plane and a Russian Van. On the way they meet the legendary eagle hunters and reaching the village where the tournament will be held.
