Tokyo on the Tele

In this three part documentary series, Andrew Marr looks at some of the worlds so called ĎMegacitiesí, of which Tokyo is the largest. The first episode focuses on London, Dhaka, Mexico, Shanghai and Japanís capital. A Megacity is an urban conurbation with a population of more than10 million with metropolitan Tokyo having an estimated population of 35 million plus. The preview of Andrew Marrís Megacities refers to Tokyo and efficient, high-tech, but alienating city. We donít believe that Tokyo is anymore alienating than any other big city and is perhaps even more friendly than most - Just visit any izakaya in Tokyo! Be sure to watch the first in the series on BBC1 at 8pm on Thursday 2nd June. We look forward to it.
