Japanese TV

Tram Journeys in Blackpool
By Fuji TV, the Japanese broadcaster/terrestrial.
The documentary programme aims to feature tram journeys in Blackpool. It also features some attractions that Blackpool city offers.






I was delighted to be asked by Mari Kamada if I could be filmed by the company for their weekly holiday documentary which features a different town/country that have trams each week. Myself and Brian Porter JLC Dancer were filmed walking along the Blackpool Promenade, riding a tram and teaching at JLC Dance Ltd.

As you can see it was a cold evening but lots of fun we had a stroll down the promenade and watched the lights being turn on we also go to be filmed riding on a tram and then later dancing and teaching at the dance studio.

The program will go out on Japanese TV and is likely to be watched by thousands of Japanese Viewers so you never no I might be famous in Japan soon!
