I'm not surprised. Even we here on the list didn't know about this show
until what? last week?
The genealogy community was fairly successful in getting the PBS stations
to run the ANCESTRY series, but only because the producers of the series
asked that community for input -- and those who saw the request passed
the alert along, and within weeks, genealogists were flooding the
stations with requests.
At this point getting the show on will require serious letter-writing or
e-mailing with a target of the anniversary date of the Jambo.
You might call up your local Community Access facilitator at your cable
company; their schedules don't fill up as fast and are much more
flexible; if a couple Troops offered to help underwrite it, it would help.
