Posting this verbatim from what I put up on Big Daikon:

I have no idea if anyone is interested (or how much the information will ultimately be relevant), but at some point during May PBS is running a short series (3 episodes) about Japan. It looks like it will essentially cover the Tokugawa Era (when Japan closed its doors to outsiders) and possibly through the Meiji era. I could be somewhat off on the latter part. The three episodes titles are listed as: EPISODE ONE: THE WAY OF THE SAMURAI, EPISODE TWO: THE WILL OF THE SHOGUN, EPISODE THREE: THE RETURN OF THE BARBARIANS. The PBS page for it is http://www.pbs.org/empires/japan/

Anyway, just thought some might be interested in taking a look at it. :)
