MJ‘Misunderstanding Japan’ was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 8th August 2015 and is now available via the BBC iPlayer, here.

Thankyou to a whole load of people for making it possible: Ian Buruma, David Pilling, Mariko Oi, Naoko Shimazu, Enzo DeGregorio, Kae, and our three JETs – Sarah, Charlotte, and Nathaniel.

At the BBC, Hugh floated the original idea, Penny was our editor, and as producer Keith steered the whole thing in the right direction from start to finish.

A thoroughly enjoyable project from start to finish – I hope that comes across when people listen. The programme will be broadcast on the World Service on 12th September, and an accompanying BBC News Magazine piece is here.
