Japanese Television "NHK" at December 2009 started television drama "Saka no ue no kumo" (Cloud on the hill) based on the same-named bestseller of Shiba Ryotaro.
This television drama consists of 13 parts per 90 minutes each.

THis sounds absolutely great - and just a shame that it won't - presumably - be shown in Europe or the US! (though I gather that the original book is hugely popular and may be translated into English soon)

If some channel in Europe or UK would be interested in this piece of work, (it is truly that this drama is very well made), NHK with pleasure will sell it.
So, If some channel is interested in this, pls contact me.
thank you.

At the end of the December, in the Japan has finished the demonstration of the 9 series of this television drama (totally there are 13 series).
As I heard,  All Japan was astonished by the beauty of our St. Petersburg palaces: Ecaterina, Alexander Palace, Palace of Grand Duke Vladimir, Ksheshinskaya Palace, Yusupov Palace, Pavlovsk , Polovtsev palace etc.
I really hope to have a chance to show this quite unique TV drama not only in Japan, but in Russia, Europe and America.
