Tokyo – Programming of NHK WORLD TV, NHK’s international broadcasting service in English language, will undergo a major revision starting in April 2014.
ãƒ»Number of programs to increase to 43
By increasing number of regular programs from 34 to 43, its programme lineup will expand to respond to diverse needs of viewers overseas. Over 70% of total programming will be about Japan and close to 80% will be original programs by NHK WORLD TV.
ãƒ»Developing new areas
The new lineup will include programs on Japanese films and Kabuki, areas previously difficult to offer on international broadcasting. It will also highlight Japan’s international contributions, so viewers will be able to learn more about what’s happening in this part of the world.
ãƒ»Strengthening news transmission
The broadcaster will enhance its capacity to transmit independent information from Japan and the rest of Asia, through coordination with NHK’s expanding global news network. In its regular news slots, it will incorporate a new economy/business segment from New York that will be aired at midnight Japan time.
Major new programs
On-air schedule: 3rd Thursday of every month from 0:30-0:58(JST) and other time slots
Overview: Featuring popular Japanese Kabuki performer, Somegoro Ichikawa as its main caster, viewers outside Japan will get a glimpse into the world of Kabuki. The programme will touch on works on contemporary themes with original stage direction, and will show highlights from the stage.
