Using this msg to propose that funding for a physical examination and more

up their alley. I have no idea how to engage their interest. The B Lib
might get some $ as well as some US national TV recognition as well. What
do you all think, and if the reaction is positive, anyone know where to start?
The problem is that when documentaries haven't got much of a story to tell
(think of science documentaries before they started using computer graphics
eye candy), they can be very boring. Also, documentary viewers typically
want to learn something tangible and provocative about a subject - to
instead learn that no-one really knows what the VMs is, would probably be a
bit of a turn-off.
That is to say, we've got the "Gee" bit covered, but we're a bit short on
the "Whiz". :-o
