  3. I think you have the first part of the series. NHK made a sequel to it "road to rome" and another that is for sea.

    Do you know if I could watch them online anywhere?

  4. Thank you so much for posting them. I too had been looking for them for a long time. I watched this in awe when I was a little kid and I didn't even understand English back then. So, thank you very much!!!!

  6. LOL Adam Scott above is a spammer, obviously. This is my favourite TV series ever. There are actually 3 sets of 12, available in the NHK dvd set, which is out of print. Look for it in your local Chinatown dvd store.

  9. Great to see these after so many years! Wondered if these 12 episodes are available on DVD as my father (Graham Webster) did the English narration while working for NHK. Love to have a permanent record for his grandsons. Any suggestions appreciated.

    1. Hi Geoff I have a NHK The Silk Road Facebook page on Facebook and I am trying to find a good quality photo of your dad who did the English narration for the Silk Road many years ago. Do you have a photo of your dad I can use for my Silk Road Facebook page? I do have a photo of your dad on my page but it is of poor quality. If you go on to Facebook and type in The Silk Road documentary TV series made by NHK you will then find it. I hope to build this page in to an excellent fan page for fans of the TV series. I would also like to dedicate the Facebook page to your late father for the success of the TV's series.
      I look forward to your reply.
      Regards

  12. They do exist on DVD, but sellers on Amazon and the like are asking a stupid amount of money for them. If you're lucky, your local library *might* have copies, which you could rip with the right software. The company that produced them is long-dead.
