by JAMES CLAVELL
A serial in five parts inspired by the true story of Will Adams, an Elizabethan sailor who became the only non-Japanese Samurai.
Starring Richard Chamberlain, Toshiro Mifune, Yoko Shimada, Alan Badel and John Rhys-Davies
Narrated by Orson Welles 4: Blackthorne has again saved Lord Toranaga's life in an act of supreme heroism during a devastating earthquake. In an unparalleled break with tradition Toranaga has rewarded him with the rank of Samurai, privileged member of the warrior class. Blackthorne himself is dominated by two equally dangerous desires - to get back the Erasmus and its crew to wage war on the treasure-laden Portuguese black ship, and his deepening love for the Lady Mariko.
