I'm working on a TV show for the UK and I'm looking for your help. We are making an observational documentary series, following the lives of many different people, taking in different elements of Brazilian life - from football to the novelas, Carnival, the beach, highlife and lowlife etc. We will also be featuring people holidaying in Rio, any time between January and April. If you have any ideas for people we can follow, or stories that we should chase then please could you email me at ricko444@aol.com.
We will be in Rio from 28th November until the beginning of April. Any contacts gratefully received!
Many thanks, Richard Evans

I hope your documentary doesn't focus exclusively on "baixaria". You could meet some Brazilian intellectuals at Rio's "Instituto Liberal". Check out their website at www.institutoliberal.org.br. The "Instituto Liberal" can offer you fresh insights into Brazil's economy, politics, and culture. You can e-mail them at ilrj@gbl.com.br. Ask for Ligia Filgueiras, "Coordenadora de Marketing" (she understands English). You could also look into the phenomenon of Padre Marcelo Rossi, the conservative Roman Catholic priest who has sold more CD's than any recording artist in Brazilian history. There is more to Brazil than football madness and sexual promiscuity (which, unfortunately, is all most people associate with Brazil).

How much do you want to bet that is, exactly, the documentary focus?
