⁣Japan's War in Colour (2004), narrated by Brian Cox.

Japan's role in World War II gets a whole new perspective in this consisting entirely of full-color footage, including color films from Japan that were recently discovered. As the visuals of the world war take on a new vivid immediateness, the story of the rise of the militarists in Japan is told through the personal writings of the Japanese themselves. From the first overconfident tastes of victory to the devastating losses that led to an unthinkable defeat amidst the ruins, the Pacific Theater of World War II is told through the Japanese's eyes.


It was assumed no color films existed in Japan until the victorious U.S. forces arrived in 1945. Now you can discover the story of a nation at war from its rare color films, plus letters and diaries from those who lived through it. Almost all the material in this color documentary has been recently discovered and allows the viewer to experience Japanese culture and events from an entirely new perspective. Subject matter includes Imperial Japanese troops in 1931 Manchuria, remarkable domestic scenes of 1930s Japan, preparation for war in 1939, and images of occupation in 1940s Shanghai.

It's good to see it in it's original film colour - BUT in the interests of HIGH clarity, it would be good to see the film digitised AND especially the attack on Pearl Harbour and to see them restored into an ORIGINAL "modern like" video reproduction. You know how looking at a monitor from say 30 years ago, and then looking at an ultra high definition screen running an equivalent quality video.... and then going, "Wooooooo - that is just like a very fine grained photograph, or even like looking out at the scenery through a very clear window".

From 24:00 onwards - Japans thought crime police. Total Obedience to the Emperor and his government.

It's still a good documentary though. Better to get it off MGTOW TV before SJWs censor the stuff they don't like.

@Jaguar_Media_Archives: I did have a copy of it, but one day I started to figure I wanted more out of life than just historical records and archives. So I deleted tons of "history" - you know like those horrible old people who have entire 78 collections of blues artists etc., and then said, "Naaaaa this has reached it's useby date and it's just taking up sapce" - same thing.

@Life_N_Times_of_Shane_T_Hanson: Yeah cool, each to their own. I'd rather keep what I can of history here before shit gets censored.
