Handover Ceremony of Japanese TV Programme “Black Jack”

     On 21 March 2019, the Handover Ceremony of a Japanese TV Programme “Black Jack” took place in the Embassy of Japan in Lusaka.
     Since 2008, Japan has continuously provided a total of 17 Japanese TV programmes to major TV stations in Zambia, and this is the first time that Q TV receives one.
    “Black Jack” is a medical drama of an unlicensed but gifted surgeon Black Jack. He always saves seriously ill patient on the verge of death, but claims an outrageous price for his surgery. Mr. Hidenobu Sobashima, Ambassador of Japan to the Republic of Zambia, who handed over the programme, himself enjoyed reading comics of Black Jack when he was young.
     At the handover ceremony, Ambassador Sobshima mentioned that, as the TV programme had been enjoyed by millions of Japanese people, he hoped that this would also be viewed and enjoyed by as many Zambians as possible. In response, Mr. Nelson Zulu, Station Manager, Q TV, expressed his gratitude for the offer from Japan.
    It is hoped that this TV programme will deepen understanding of Japan and its culture and arts by Zambians, help broaden the exchange between Zambia and Japan, and further strengthen the friendship between the two countries.
