Thank you, Richard, and everyone else who has called in and hounded the
BBC. Please be aware, however, that Laura Palmer is an assistant at the
BBC, and while she keeps track of the various requests, you should still
talk to Burton first. My feeling on the matter is that if he doesn't
hear about it directly, it will be too easy for him to start dismissing
it. So call Burton and let him give you Laura's number, but let's not
let him slip out of the loop, since he is the prime decision maker.
