Hey Akis -
I know, I know. I've actually put a comment on my contact form - yes, I totally screwed up. It was a slip of the tongue (Agia Sofia is of course Greek) but unfortunately the editor used the wrong take and no-one picked it up until it was too late. It had been a long filming day and the wrong word just came out of my mouth! Doh. Many apologies to all the attentive viewers who've picked me up on this. Mary-Ann

you said Agia Sofia means holy or divine wisdom..... in Turkish?
You have to be out of your mind.
Agia is what you call a Saint... in this case a woman. Sofia was the name of the saint. The church was named after that saint... Agia Sofia... in Turkish??????

hi Joe,
thanks for your comment. It's a difficult story on many levels, including the ones you flag up. But I believe the details of this extraordinary case are worth investigating, and the people who most influenced John's life demonstrate an inspiring and humbling level of care for the child they encountered. That's a representation of the people of Uganda that I'm happy to disseminate!

It is astonishing to see the program you presented (the Monkey Boy) John.
It is not totally a waste of air time, it did not teach us anything but goes to reinforce all the nahative image and stereotypes about Africa.
By the way, did all the actors in the film paid the same wage as in UK. Also, can you honestly tell us that no money was paid under the table to grant you access to the villages.
