Getting to know the amish

Many years ago when I was a young television director working my way up the ladder to the big time and living in Indiana, it was suggested by the TV station’s program director that I do a documentary about the Amish. There are counties in Indiana that are heavily populated by the religious group, and little was known about them since they lived their lives primarily with their own population. They were successful farmers mostly, and their lives revolved around that business. I thought this would make a good documentary so agreed to do it.
