Followed by Weather
As part of the celebration of the nationwide Japan Festival, BBC2 profiles three key figures at the centre of modern Japanese culture, all of whom have a continuing fascination with Japan and the west. This major festival is a celebration of all things
Japanese. It has taken four years and 115 million to plan and consists of 120 events over the four-month duration of the festival. Tonight's programmes look at the work of architect Isozaki, theatre director Ninagawa and film director Oshima.
(Season continues tomorrow at 6.30pm with 'Butoh - Body on the Edge of Crisis')
An examination of architect
Arata Isozaki 's revolutionary work and the way in which he has successfully synthesised traditional Japanese ideas with western building techniques to create his own distinctive architectural vision. Isozaki's work includes the Museum of Contemporary Art in LA and his largest construction yet, a Sports Palace for the next
Olympic Games in Barcelona which has a capacity of more than 17,000 people. Director Michael Blackwood

Tango with Ninagawa
Japanese theatre director Yukio Ninagawa returns to Britain to direct
Kunio Shimuku 's Tango at the End of Winter, a contemporary
Japanese play starring
Alan Rickman and Suzanne Bertish.
The film follows the successes and failures of this unique cultural exchange - the frustrations of language and etiquette set against international camaraderie and the pursuit of excellence. Director Philip Day
Kyoto, My Mother's Place Nagisa Oshima , best known for his feature films Merry
Christmas Mr Lawrence and In the Realm of the Senses returns to his birthplace in the old capital city of Kyoto.
Oshima was born to an old samurai family, and here he reflects on his mother's life - restrictive and exploitive - as well as his own feelings of hatred for Kyoto. It is an insiders introduction to the history, culture and people of Japan, an intensely moving film in which Oshima opens up his heart and his country.
A Taxing Woman
A short season of Japanese films opens with a first showing on network television for this tongue-in-cheek comedy thriller from the director of Tampopo. Juzo Itami was provoked by his own experiences with the National Tax Agency to investigate the world of big business and the single-minded pursuit of money as the key value of life in contemporary Japan. An obsessive tax inspector tangles with a stylish gangster who has a string of mistresses and a sophisticated system of tax frauds. In Japanese with English subtitles.
