NHK World TV has programs lined up on Japanese design, architects and technology for the year ahead.

NHK World TV’s English-language programming will include J-TECH Innovation & Evolution, which aims to promote a deeper understanding of Japan. Airing monthly, the program looks at the advanced technology that goes into made-in-Japan items, including eco-friendly cars, bullet trains, medical equipment and new, lightweight materials.

Meanwhile, Design Talks will air three times a month and present Japan’s designs, from classical art to cutting-edge technology, while J-Architect features Japanese architects’ works, technique and design.

In addition, NHK World TV will offer an expanded Newsline, with coverage on Japan, Asia, and the rest of the world, along with reports from its overseas bases.
