    Granada TV and The New York Times have formed a co-venture to make
    documentaries for The Learning Channel in the United States.  We are making
    a one-hour documentary on the subject of Satellites.
    
    This programme will tell the story of the satellite from the very first
    aerial observations made from the Montgolfier's balloon flight of 1783
    through to the launch of Sputnik in 1957 right up to the incredible
    pictures
    that can be taken today from space with a 10cm resolution.
    
    There are more than 8000 satellites in space and the use of pictures
    generated from them is limitless.  We will be telling the stories of how
    these satellites in space can help people here on earth.  From speaking to
    firefighters who used satellite imagery to extinguish the wildfires of
    2000,
    to hearing from farmers in California monitor their crops and vineyards
    through the use high -resolution imagery.
    
    We are also very keen to speak with satellite watchers. Groups and
    individuals. Can anyone help with any contacts. Are you a remote sensing
    fanatic?
    
    I am also looking for a teenager whio is a whiz on the computer who is into
    satellites and remote sensing.
    
    If this is you or you know someone please email me at
    birgitte.johnson@granadamedia.com or you can call me collect (I am based in
    England but am looking for Americans. I will be in the states in a weeks
    time.) Tel: 011 44 161 827 2146
    
    Thanks
