To me, just one little old viewer out here in TV land, religious
topics are matters of faith in a spirit world. In such cases,
tasteful limbo lighting is entirely appropriate.

The problem faced by ufology is credibility. That is not
enhanced by limbo lighting, in the opinion of this UFO
documentary viewer.

Wouldn't it fill you with positive pride if you did a
documentary, _finally_, after many decades, which enhanced
credibility, and focussed on the very best physical evidence,
exposing things _never_ before exposed on a documentary?
Physical traces, radar confirmation and tapes? Multiple witness
events?

I'm no expert in production, but I think I could do a doc
according to the wishes of the researchers who participate, and
_still_ make it appealing. I don't think that would be hard at
all.

I wonder, since many producers have an experience base in many
different genres, if producers who want to tell the full truth
are taking enough quiet reflective time to think carefully how
_unique_ are the needs of the UFO field. I wonder if the
producers take time to really think how much benefit they could
create if they just made some sensible changes suggested by
seniour UFO researchers, such as I've seen here on this list
over the years.

I'm not a producer, and I'm not a ufologist, but the issue of
what UFOs are and who is piloting them and why impacts me big
time. I'm asking producers to step back and _see_ that the UFO
issue isn't just another contract - it has far reaching
ramifications for everyone.

Seems to me as if you, being one of the two (?) producers on
this List, have a _huge_ and exciting opportuity to 'break the
mold' here. Starting with the pro bono project you're working on
now.
