In early November 2013, the Civil Censorship Detachment (CCD) and its Japanese staff were the subject of NHK’s Today’s Close-up. In the program, Dr. Taketoshi Yamamoto, who leads the Institute of Intelligence Studies, explained the work of the CCD, particularly the censorship of mail communications. A short excerpt from the show and the full transcript are available on the NHK Online website. The roster of Japanese nationals who worked for the CCD is available on the Institute of Intelligence Studies website.
