Hi Paul,

Well, I can think of two examples straight off the top of my
head where the action on the part of the producer could best be
described as malicious.

Firstly, Peter Jennings treatment of Roswell and Stan was at the
very least uncalled for and the testimony of two retired RAF
pilots in a British documentary, conducted outside, was finished
off with the call of a cuckoo as the last words were spoken. Now
if that isn't putting the boot in, then I don't know what is.

I mean no disrespect to the list of names that followed Paul, but
someone had to think it up and put it together. If it had turned
out awful you would have copped the blame so you might as well
get the kudos while the going is still good.

What I tried to say in my previous post, and didn't elucidate
too clearly, is that people make great contributions to this
subject but often don't get acknowledged. Be it books, research,
whatever, we snipe and criticise but don't often say "Well
done".

For reasons I can't fathom, you're particularly keen to have
mention made of Ms Kris Lee McBride. She most certainly did an
excellent job, very understated, excellent tone, pace, style -
almost a menace in her voice. But where is Ms. Veronica
Reynolds? We were just getting used to her Paul but it seems she
is cast aside and now no doubt locked away in some room,
desolate and tearful. You heartless brute.

Is there any progress on further distribution (of the
documentary)?
