In 2001 Haruomi Hosono hosted a TV programme on NHK BS2, called the Haruomi Hosono Yellow Magic Show. On the programme Hosono invited a lot of his musician friends, the so-called 'Hosono family' to perform, although it was a music variety programme with a talk and comedy element as well. This was the first time that the members of Yellow Magic Orchestra, Hosono plus Ryuichi Sakamoto and Yukihiro Takahashi had appeared together since 1993. Other musicians who appeared are Takashi Matsumoto and Shigeru Suzuki (from Happy End) Tateo Hayashi (from Tin Pan) Tei Towa, Morio Agata, Miharu Koshi, Kiyoshiro Imawano, Sheena & The Rokkets, Chu Kohsaka, Kazuyoshi Nakamura, Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, Hiroshi Takano, plus a few actors for those comedy sketches. A welcome release onto DVD of what had been rare footage.
