TV program heads up (6)- TV Tokyo Tues. 02/18, 10pm~
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Japan Rail: News & General DiscussionFor forumers in Japan, of possible interest is tomorrow night's broadcast of the business documentary show "Gaia no yoake", on TV Tokyo from 10pm. The subjects will be an innovative bus company taking over a bankrupt bus service, and a profile of the Isumi Railway in Chiba Prefecture, which has managed to attract ridership and keep itself from getting shut down. These programs, being intended for "serious" audiences (TV Tokyo is owned by business newspaper Nihon Kezai Shimbun- the "WSJ of Japan"), tend to be more full of insight and substance than the variety specials typically broadcast on the bigger TV channels. Check it out. http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/gaia/

TV program heads up (3)- 9/28 (Sat.) 7pm~ Fuji TV, Real Scope Hyper
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Japan Rail: News & General DiscussionOnce again, a two hour quiz/information show will air this evening (Saturday) on Fuji TV from 7pm. The subject will be shinkansen and subways. There should be a few good segments in it, if past episodes are considered- "behind the scenes" maintenance of E6 shinkansen trainsets, delivery of new Tokyo Metro rolling stock, etc. preview clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ms7-iUsoolk&list=PLh4aJSJaObrZ0eMg4lpw_rgfvyInTHPKA *I viewed an interview with the producer of this program, and he mentioned a segment about the 20 year interval comprehensive inspection/maintenance of subway tunnels, which should be interesting and likely never been broadcast before.
