If Japan Can... Why Can't We?

On June 24, 1980, Americans widely viewed the NBC documentary titled “If Japan Can… Why Can’t We.” The program, part of NBC’s White Paper series, prominently featured Dr. W. Edwards Deming. Produced by Clare Crawford-Mason and narrated by Lloyd Dobyns, this documentary has been inaccessible for public viewing for the past 35 years.
This video is provided by The Deming Institute, who has secured the perpetual rights and is making it available free of charge.
