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?
