NHK World running a show called Train Cruise
miyakoji posted a topic in Japan Rail: Pictures & VideosI just noticed that NHK World has a show (new to me) called Train Cruise. Link here: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/tv/special/train_cruise.html . This channel is broadcast all over the world by different networks, it might be available in your region. If it's not, NHK also has an Android app that I think will let you tune in from any internet-connected device: http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.nhkworldtv.android

TV Episode heads up railway content Japan NHK
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Japan Rail: News & General DiscussionFor forum menbers living in Japan, there will be a new episode of "Tetsudo Ookoku Monogatari (#5)", on NHK BS Premium, on Feb. 13, 9pm~10:29pm. Various topics will be covered in 90 minutes (commercial-free), but ones of particular interest personally and perhaps more on the hardcore railfan spectrum, are segments on the Alfa-x test bed trainset, nighttime track maintenance, and a visit to a turnout manufacturing facility. Might be worth a view. https://www.nhk.or.jp/info/pr/toptalk/assets/pdf/soukyoku/2021/01/005.pdf
NHK Documentary- Tokyo Reborn: Shibuya Station redevelopment
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Japan Rail: Pictures & VideosRecent broadcast on NHK general about the redevelopment of the Shibuya Station area, with a focus on the opening of the Saikyo Line platform adjacent to the Yamanote Line platform, and the movement of tracks as well as the railway bridge crossing the old Oyama Road leading to Dougenzaka and the Shibuya Scramble intersection. 1000 construction workers and specialists along with 100 vehicles were given 52 hours to do the task, while observing covid-19 countermeasures. Everything had to be finished at the end of 52 hours and full restoration of Saikyo Line services. Everything was timed to the minute, with each person tasked with specific duties. There was even a mock bridge set up off site to rehearse the move and set procedures. Other parts of the documentary explain the redevelopment of the station area to improve passenger and pedestrian circulation and safety in the event of natural disasters, in coordination with four different railway companies.

NHK: city folk move to the country to farm
miyakoji posted a topic in Off TopicI just caught some of this interesting program on NHK World: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/tv/broadcasterseye/lineup.html . The show focuses on a man who moved from Osaka to the town of Sugaike in Ishiyama-ken to become a farmer. It seems that his progress is followed for a few years. Fortunately, after a while, he starts to enjoy some success. Interesting lifestyle choice. I don't think I could go all the way to becoming a farmer, but I can certainly see the appeal in the "downshifting" thing. This will be shown one more time at 8:10 PM UTC. http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/tv/broadcasterseye/lineup.html http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/tv/schedule/
