    I have seen some of Lalita Krishna’s other documentaries so I know this one will be worth catching. BTW… August 13th is a Sunday. I’ll be watching.

    TVO seems to be making some big progrmming changes these days. Good time to nudge the station in the direction of more documentaries like this one. We don’t need more puppet shows for kids.

    The documentary was very good. I wrote to TVO, to ask when they would be running it again but they said it wasn’t scheduled to run again. Too bad. I was hoping to recommend it to friends who missed it and I wouldn’t mind seeing it again, myself.

    The TVO reply said I should keep an eye on their schedule, suggesting that they might replay the film. Maybe if others write too, the chances will be improved.
