New Air Date for My Japanese TV Interview

The segment on DNA testing on Close-Up Today, NHK Japan Broadcasting Corporation has been preempted, according to the producers, due to the unrest in the Middle East, New Zealand's earthquake and the volcano eruption in Japan. The new air date is April 6th. Hopefully, international events will settle down so they can concentrate on personal genomics. :-)

[Update - I would like to report that all of the NHK production team are safe and the crew is currently in Japan covering the sad events of the last few days. Obviously, my tongue-in-cheek wish for international calm was in vain and I am sure it will be quite awhile until this segment can air. My heart goes out to the Japanese people at this very difficult time.]
