First viewed : Autumn 1982
This is barely worth noting as I only saw a few minutes of this five part U.S. mini-series based on a 1975 novel by James Clavell about an English sailor shipwrecked in Japan who rises to become a samurai warrior in the closed feudal world of seventeenth century Japan. The novel was very loosely based on a true story.
The only reason it sticks in my mind is that the bit I saw had star Richard Chamberlain being urinated on for some transgression which was not normal fare in these sort of things.
