I caught up with director Philip Smith and series producer Russell Barnes on Friday to find out more about the state of play of programme one's production and what the production is still looking for from the web and our community. It turns out, we want people to go to Buenos Aires.

Well, not exactly...

As Philip says in the video above, we'd love to have been able to film Wikimania 2009 to include in our programme. Unfortunately we can't get out to Buenos Aires where Wikimania is being held this year, so we are hoping to crowdsource some footage for the programme (and the web).

So - if you, or anyone you know, is attending Wikimania 2009 and would like to film some of the event for us, we would love to hear from you asap. Please get in touch with a comment or contact us via the web form.

We're currently working out the best way that we could help you share that content with us online on a creative commons platform, so that the content would remain open and in the spirit of Wikipedia. When I have the final details I'll post them as a comment to this piece.
