Three additional remarks on the content of this interview: Marita fræðsla - in English "Marita-education": The so-called "Marita fræðsla" is a preventative education by Magnús Stefánsson, in which teachers and former addicts educate students about drug abuse and its consequences. The aim of the training is to keep young people away from all types of drugs and to be aware of the consequences of drug use. From the 6th class, the students' self-confidence will be also encouraged in cooperation with their parents. Source: among others Foreldrafélag Vogaskóla Magnús Scheving (born November 10, 1964 in Reykjavík) is an actor, sportsman, television producer and businessman Scheving gives lectures and conducts aerobics classes in his home country, as well he promotes healthy eating and school sports for children. He is a passionate public speaker when it comes to fitness and a healthy and active lifestyle of children and adolescents. In 1995 Scheving wrote a book entitled "GO! GO! Lazy Town!", which aims to encourage children and adolescents to do sports and pay attention to health and nutrition. The book became a best seller in Iceland, and he wrote four more books, including a musical based on this book series. In addition, three music CDs, a board game and the eponymous television series for children were produced. Meanwhile Lazy Town has become a fixture in every Icelandic household. The TV series, first screened on an Icelandic television channel in 2004, reached the 4th rank of all pre-school TV series on US television and is still a great success in 49 other countries.

The beginning of the story was rather brief, but it aroused Þorgrímur's interest because his interlocutor told to him mysterious: "I regularly see a young woman who is claiming she can't find peace for her soul until someone tells her story. She died 200 years ago!"... "Allt hold er hey" (literally "all meat is hay") is the story of this long-forgotten Icelandic woman. The book was published in 1994 and was the first for adults by Þorgrímur Þráinsson, previously awarded many prizes as a children's book author. Source: Emma - íslenskar rafbækur
