I’d like to thank Maria Mironowicz, the CBC executive who supported the Dee & Moore Mississippi project from the very beginning, and Patsy Pehleman for commissioning what was supposed to be a short documentary for CBC Sunday. Also Katie McGuire, the producer who conceived of the 2004 MIBURN documentary and asked me to shoot and direct it. My friend Andy Dymond. My brother Peter. My wife Kathie and son Owen. And editor Michael Hannan who accompanied me to Mississippi and even did some camera work. Jerry Weedon for all his moral and equipment support. And Don Knox, Michael Hughes, Jerry McIntosh and Michael Claydon for supporting the original project later in the process.
