The morning paper reported that as one part of Japan's aid program to
Iraq, the Japan Foundation, a semi-autonomous agency of the Foreign
Ministry, will be paying to have the TV program _Oshin_ broadcast on
Iraqi television. The program about a young girl battling against
poverty to rise to success against the background of Japan's
modernization, has been popular in Asia and the Middle East.
Can anyone think of other cases where Japanese moving images have been
used as foreign aid?
