Banzai - Netflix
Banzai was a comedy gambling game show spoofing Japanese game shows and general television style. It was produced by Radar, part of RDF Media. Each segment of the show was a silly or bizarre contest. Members of the viewing audience were encouraged to bet with each other on the outcome of each segment. The Japanese characters seen on screen during the programme are meaningless.
Type: Game Show
Runtime: 30 minutes
Banzai - Banzai Cliff - Netflix
Banzai Cliff is a historic site at the northern tip of Saipan island in the Northern Mariana Islands, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Towards the end of the Battle of Saipan in 1944, hundreds of Japanese civilians and soldiers jumped off the cliff to their deaths in the ocean and rocks below, to avoid being captured by the Americans. Not far away, a high cliff named Suicide Cliff overlooks the coastal plain, and was another site of numerous suicides. At Banzai Cliff, some who jumped did not die and were rescued by American ships. A 7.5-acre (3.0 ha) area at the site was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The site is also a contributing site in the Landing Beaches; Aslito/Isley Field; & Marpi Point, Saipan Island historic district, which was recognized in 1985 as a U.S. National Historic Landmark District.
