1990: NINTENDO and the JAPANESE SOFTWARE boom | The Money Programme | Retro Computing | BBC Archive

Gordon Brewer visits Japan, to gauge the state of the Japanese software industry. With Nintendo having already demonstrated that a Japanese corporation can quickly dominate the US video games software market, should the big American business software developers be worried? Gordon speaks with Charles Elliot of Goldman Sachs, Nintendo’s resident design genius Shigeru Miyamoto, Kazuhiko “Kay” Nishi of ASCII, author Thomas Zengage, Bill Totten of Ashisuto and Ken Sakamura – the Tokyo University Professor behind Japan’s ambitious TRON project. This clip is from The Money Programme, originally broadcast 25 March, 1990.
