(from Christmas Letter)

...In August FOX TV decided to film 6 episodes of a series called TEMPTATION in Belize. They started arriving in September and kept coming until there was 120 people here, all on Ambergris Caye and ranging out every day over the country. They hired a lot of Belizeans and spent about a $1 million U.S. in a month.

They finished filming two days before Hurricane Keith hit Ambergris Caye. Eighty of them left Belize for Hollywood. Forty decided to stay because they had never seen a hurricane. When I got them back to town they had not had a bath for three days and were complaining that beer had run out. Anyway, there was no bones broken and no blood shed, so they had a great experience

I have since been advised that three more TV programmes will ne filmed in Belize--one from Canada, one from Belgium and one from Washington, D.C. (That one is being done by Walter Cronkite's company).I can claim about $8 million (Belize) spent in Belize by film makers this year...

That provocative formula proved powerful enough to trump fictional White
House intrigue Wednesday night, as the second episode of "Temptation" beat
NBC's "The West Wing" in viewer ratings, according to Nielsen Media

"Temptation" drew 17.6 million viewers and posted an average household
rating of 11.5 this week, compared with 13.8 million viewers and a 9.8
rating for a rerun of "West Wing."

An original episode of the White House drama won last week's matchup in
household ratings and total viewers but lost out to "Temptation" in ratings
for viewers aged 18 to 49, the group most prized by advertisers.

In the important 18-to-49 demographic this week, "Temptation Island" scored
an even more impressive 23 share -- meaning nearly one in four young adults
with televisions turned on were watching.

"We did very well," a Fox spokeswoman said of the show that has attracted
criticism for turning the possible destruction of personal relationships
into voyeuristic entertainment.
