Japanese Television Visits the BA
A delegation from the Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) visited the BA on 28 September 2017 as part of its visit to prepare for a documentary on the queens of Pharaonic Egypt titled “The Mystery of Ancient Egyptian Queens”. The program aims to strengthen Egyptian-Japanese relations and promote Japanese tourism in Egypt.
The delegation recorded a number of interviews at the Antiquities Museum, Manuscript Museum, and the Planetarium Science Center (PSC) Exploratorium. As they toured the BA and filmed detailed footage of the Main Reading Area and the various BA centers and museums, the delegation expressed their admiration of the research and digital services offered by the Library to its visiting readers and researchers.
