Brighton, UK – Japan’s biggest broadcaster NHK has picked up four BBC Worldwide titles: Hustle, Hotel Babylon, State Within and State of Play. BBC Worldwide Japan Limited’s manager programme sales Miyuki Kinoshita told Television Asia Plus of the deals, admitting that the opportunity for sales of non-factual genres to NHK arose from the WGA Writers’ Strike – which has since been resolved. And as part of British Year in Japan, LaLa TV picked up a range of BBC dramas including Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Jane Eyre and Bleak House.
