I am a student filmmaker researching the life of TV writer Ian MacKintosh.
As you are no doubt aware Ian created Sandbaggers, and I have recently discovered how his legacy is being continued through online fan fiction.
As you are running a Sandbaggers fan fiction site, I would be very interested in hearing from you to discover more about the Sandbaggers fan community in general and any ongoing activities, especially in the UK. I hope you can assist.
I gave him my email address and he wrote again:
As I mentioned, I'm a filmmaker hoping to produce a documentary about Ian MacKintosh. But I would also very much like to cover Ian's work from the fan perspective.
I understand that Sandbaggers has a particularly strong US fanbase but, as I'm unable to travel, I am particularly keen to hear from UK fans.
I'd also be interested to hear about any fan meetings, memorabilia, and fan made video material that might exist anywhere.
Do feel free to pass on my email details to any interested parties.
You can contact him through his LJ, franksearle.
I’ve forwarded this gentleman’s email to the SB fans I know, and one of them is going to post about it to the Facebook group. Also, I’m going to share what fan materials I have to him.
I hope some of y’all will contact him, especially any of you who live in the UK.
