Clive James in Japan Part 1
First broadcast 22:05 19 Dec 1987, ITV
This cap taken from (amended?) Sky Travel Channel rpt 2005
Clive James visits Tokyo, the capital of Japan. After spending an evening sampling the delights on offer in the Shinjuku district, Clive tackles his role as a contestant on cult gameshow 'Takeshi's Castle' with his usual enthusiasm. Then it's off to encounter some more traditional Japanese culture in the form of a Geisha (or is that Geiko?) ceremony.
This is the first of two programmes covering Clive's visit to Japan in the late 80's - I do not have the second part - I am uploading this only as it has been specifically requested.
The quality of this cap is lower than the other CJ travelogues upped to thebox - specifically, the resolution is low (384x288 suggests a transcode from a video-CD cap) and there is occasional sound/picture break-up - in short this is one for Clive James fanatics/completists only.
