I am also a fan of the Sandbaggers series. =20
I think that this would be a great addition to the Television Worth =
Watching series. I have been faithfully watching Cop Rock, the Avengers, =
The Saint, Fernwood 2-Night and America 2-Night, Mary Hartman Mary =
Hartman, and Secret Agent. (I bough Twin Peaks on video).
Keep up the good programming. Looking forward to more.

Subject: TV SCHEDULING SUGGESTION: UK SERIES CALLED "SANDBAGGERS"
Thanks to Jason for getting the e-mail address for Bravo, the Canadian =
TV channel with a mandate that fits well with airing Sandbaggers.
We would want Bravo to understand that Jason was not the only one who =
tune in if Bravo were to take this step. I've sent the attached e-mail, =
the more supporting messages, the more likely we are to succeed.

>I'd like to add my voice to those making the suggestion that Bravo air =
UK spy series called Sandbaggers.
>As you might have heard, Sandbaggers aired in the late 70s and early =
and arguably is the best spy series ever made. There are only 20 =
available from Yorkshire Television, the ITV franchise.
>A testament to the quality of the shows is that there is a Webpage
(http://skylee.com/sandbaggers.html) with details of every episode, and =
mailing list of devotees.
>The problem facing many of us is that the show aired so long ago, =
had VCRs, that we have not seen all of the programs.
>The opportunity for Bravo is as follows. The show seems to meet your
mandate quite directly. Unlike some of the older programs airing on
late-night TV, this is excellent stuff. Between the reality of its =
and the fanatics around who would either stay up or program the VCRs, I
believe you would find some genuine response in your viewer numbers if
Sandbaggers were aired at some obscure time. At this late date, it =
very expensive for you to air.
>Please pass this on to your director of programming. =20
>And if you decide to act on the suggestion, please respond and give us
fanatics some notice. There will be lots of gratitude and loyalty from =
of us who appreciate good TV.
