So, I'm going to be on television in a couple of days. The channel in question is NHK World, which is the Japanese national broadcaster's international channel. The program is therefore in English, not Japanese, and can be seen all over the world. It will be broadcast six times on Tuesday 16th July, UTC, and the program is half an hour long.
There are links at the top and bottom of the page to pages explaining how to watch it on television if you happen to have the right cable subscriptions. If you want to watch it online, the channel is streamed on their top page.
You can get a higher-resolution stream from there, and there are iOS and Android apps as well.
This has nothing at all to do with Ars Magica, and a lot to do with cows, but I thought some people might be interested in seeing what I look like. The program is also about a beautiful region of Japan.
Nah, I only carry a burning cane for daily usage. My flaming sword is in the closet for the party days when we go play with big creatures or the mother-in-law comes to visit. Otherwise my custos and covenfolk complained about the smell and soot I was leaving all around.
Lovely programme, David! Especially liked the pasture in the sky and the bull-theme in a strange coincidence became yet another inspiration for a bull-focused Cretan character (apprenticed by Marcus Scholae Criamonis, MoH) I'm currently writing on for a new Ars saga.
Having enjoyed your lucid blog for years - which I believe have had pictures on occassion - it was not surprising to see a face on the Line Editor. However, adding a voice, and a soft diplomatic one at that, was new and you strike a very nice storytelling stance, a reminder on how diplomats, teachers, and storytellers are certainly all threads weaven from the same fabric.
