    Hello, I just finished watching living with the Mek. I enjoyed it so much. I thought it would be wonderful if you did a series on the Sammi people. I came across this site and saw you had them listed. Does this mean you are going to do a show like you did with the Mek, or have you already done so? If there is and I missed it, where would I be able to get ahold of it. They are so interesting. You can not find out much information on their early life. I know that they were said to be capable of majic…makes you wonder what they really did that Romans thought they could do majic. Thank you for the great adventure……hope to see another program soon….no matter where you and Mark go. Teresa
