Dear Mr. Buddy Paraiso (BDY):
Greetings from GMA News and Public Affairs!
I-Witness is the Philippines' longest running and most awarded TV documentary show. It is a two time recipient of the prestigious George Peabody Awards.
For fifteen years, I-Witness has stood its ground as the flagship public affairs documentary program of GMA Network, Inc. (GMA-7). The show seeks to chronicle places, issues, people, and events that are of significance and interest to the Filipino people. Hosted by four award-winning broadcast journalists, Howie Severino, Kara David, Jay Taruc, and Sandra Aguinaldo, the program has garnered local and international awards for its thought-provoking documentaries. The show currently airs every Saturday night in GMA 7 and every Tuesday night in GMA NEWSTV. It also airs in over 80 countries through GMA Pinoy TV.
Veteran journalist Howie Severino and our team are currently working on a story about termites, their benefits to the ecosystem and how they have become one of the extremely destructive pests on earth.
In relation to this, we will be discussing some Filipino beliefs on "nuno sa punso" and we would like to show some illustrations of it. We would like to ask proper permission from you to use your digital art as one of the nuno sa punso illustrations in our episode which will air on May 2, 2015 (Saturday).
We are sorry for the urgency of this request. We hope that you could allow us.
Thank you very much and more powers!
Patricia de Guzman
