Loved the mini series, and just watched it again recently (loved the book, too). Amazing that the whole thing is on you-tube.

This is the complete 9-hour mini-series, and is a fantastic, accurate cultural exploration of Japan in the 16th Century... and not much has changed since...
Well worth watching in its entirety.
