Random Observations on NHK World
*Weird Voices on the Dub -All Japanese voices have an American Dub, so pensioners from Ueno sound like they are are tourists from the US. I wonder if they take the trouble to really assign the right accent - a rough, tough Docker from the Kansai region should have a Bronx accent, perhaps?
*Stilted is not the word -It's like watching the BBC from the 50's when the news is on.
*Another Travel Doc - You can't go wrong for slooow Documentaries about sausage weavers of Niigata or Pendulum Crushers of Hokkaido. All with annoying Lift music and a presenter who sounds like he might just vote for that Eisenhower fellow.
Mind You, I cant stop watching!
