      If I'm not mistaken, this is a repeat of a show that was broadcast some
      time back. Yes, it is out of period, but it is excellent. If it's the
      one I'm thinking of, it actually goes through a day in the life of a
      modern geisha, along with great information about their training, etc.
      If nothing else, it gives one a glimpse into Japanese culture...and, if
      I'm not mistaken, there were ladies involved in similar activites in
      period.
