The Matsushita Electric Company: how many Americans could pronounce this company's name, much less tell you what it does? Yet in 1990, Matsushita bought the entertainment conglomerate MCA Universal for $6.8 billion, the largest acquisition ever by a Japanese company in America. Matsushita is one of the largest corporations in the world, with a controversial history in the United States stretching back more than thirty years. In "The Giant from Japan," Frontline examines the epic rise of this Japanese company and its uneasy presence in America. Reported by Japanese social critic Shuichi Kato.
