Thanks Jane,

I think there is scope for high quality drama from the archives (and probably cost effective because they have already paid for it) which Follyfoot definitely is. A weekday repeat instead of Midsommer Murders will be a welcome change.

I will email them when I have thought of a suitable reply!

I'll certainly send an email, no problem at all. Might it be an idea to have some agreed effective framework for the wording, or should we all just do our own thing?

By that I mean are there any key points that might be looked for  that could be overlooked by those of us not used to dealing with media / TV ?

Hi Hercules

Thank you  for saying you  would help. I think you should say what you really feel and then each email will not look as if it has been dictated.

Best wishes
Jane

Hello Jane! Good to see you here, it was really nice to meet you in person  :)
I hope you and the book are doing well, my signed copy is definitely a Follytreasure.

Might seem a bit weird if I emailed them from Finland, but i could actually try to figure out is there any chance of rerunning the series in Finland again. I know there are people in the internet wishing a rerun here too, let's see what happens. The local TV might not have the commercial rights to show it again.

If you are interested, there are plenty of anniversary pics under the section Follyfoot 40th Anniversary Celebrations, go and have a look  :)

All the best,
Anne

Hi Jane

I wrote to ITV3 to ask if they would repeat Follyfoot but they said they had no plans to do so.  I think Hollinhare wrote too and had the same response.

A good idea to get everybody together on this - I'll certainly send a message.   >41<

Hi Jane,

As Loopy's just mentioned we tried to get ITV3 interested in the idea last year with no luck! But I'm all for having another go...

Hi Jane!

Very nice to see you on the Forum!

Yes - I shall certainly send an e-mail to ITV!

Hope the book sales are going well. I treasure my copy.

Hi Jane.


Not sure what help an email would be from the US.  So I'll just wish everyone luck in getting Follyfoot back on TV.  I'll be praying o the telly gods for you all.

Love the book BTW.  Thank you so much for putting it together for us :) :)

@MJ...  Don't know about Michigan public television but Georgia PBS purchases MANY British productions.  Perhaps we should put in our two cents worth anyway—even knowing that a rebroadcast over there wouldn't do us any good over here—and suggest their marketing department pitch "Follyfoot" to American public television buyers. And... contact our respective PBS entities to suggest that this would be a worthy addition to their imported entertainment.

Emails coming from outside the  UK might help impress upon the powers that be just how wide the appeal of  the show is

Hi to everyone

I would just like to say Thank You for all support in trying to get Follyfoot back on our screens.  The more we keep trying, maybe someone, somewhere will listen.

Thanks again = Jane
