Here's Dr. Phil's e-mail reply (a standard automated one, but who knows what could happen?).
<Dear Ian Hinze,
Thank you for emailing Dr. Phil. This is just a quick note to let you know that your message has been received and is important to us. However, due to the volume of e-mail we get, we are not able to respond to every one personally.
If your e-mail expressed interest in being a guest on the show, a producer may follow up with you, but this is not a guarantee.
If you have written requesting reservations to a taping of the show, an audience representative should call you within a week. Please be patient.
Thanks again for your interest in the show.

To be honest, I'm not optimistic about receiving further contact. However, they've got my story now and it might just get them thinking. I guess they'd rather have "locals" on the show, too, rather than flying a Brit over . Whatever, anything that can highlight the cultic hold of this family-destroying organisation has got to be a positive step.
Love to all,
