Re: "A Forgotten Odyssey"
Thanks for the kind comments on Jagna and Aneta's film.
I believe that Leona Connell from IMG Media has hit a brick wall on getting this onto US TV so far. I will copy her on this, and let her contact you directly. I believe that there re others on the list who were also willing to "lobby" the TV stations. Please let me know who you are, and I can coordinate a campaign with Leona.
Here are the people that Leona has been in touch with before and who have turned it down.

Thank you so much for a copy of the film. I thought it was very well done, a first class production. I cannot just let this tape sit on my shelf. I will try to organize a showing in the area and will keep you informed. In the United States, this sort of documentary is frequently shown on public televsion (PBS). I am curious whether someone has tried to get it on such a medium. I realize I am not breaking new ground with this thought. If you could use some lobbying on that behalf please let me know what I could do.Bob Ambros
