Biography: Hirohito
He told his subject they would never surrender. But a consultation with the I Ching changed his mind. The hexagram called "Retreat" convinced Emperor Hirohito that it was time for Japan to staunch its wounds and wait for the sun to rise another day. This program chronicles the life and reign of the Japanese emperor who was proclaimed living divinity in 1926. Archival film footage of his coronation and reign are presented. Interviews with palace insiders and historians tell the story of Hirohito, who saw his country change dramatically under the Marshall Plan. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
