I have listened and loved so many of the podcasts from The Documentary series. I think the BBC's investment in finding facinating subjects throughout the world will pay dividends over the years. Your correspondents are learning how to find the stories that we listeners never thought would interest us. The subtleties and richness remind us that no matter how foreign the person or subject, we will recognise ourselves and understand why we need to take interest. Bulgaria on a Cliff Edge was wonderfully told, a woman saying she was offering a sandwich and biscuit so she will not be forgotten is so poignant. With English becoming more prominent, I think the worlds younger generations will come to appreciate the BBC's curiosity and compassion, I wish my country, the US would invest in it's future the way you are. That goes for many of the other podcasts that you have to offer.
