Frank. Your show was instructive, historically interesting and gave a good impression of detectorists. The shows they have had on make it look like giving permission to detect an area means bulldozers and ruined landscaping. Either that or two silly guys jumping up in the air and crawling on the ground yelling about "juice" and "nectar." It is embarrassing to be associated with that nonsense. By all means if Discovery or anyone else wants to produce a good metal detecting show, they should contact you. The shows on now can only hurt the hobby.

Frank and John
Just watched the Ghost Towns in the East DVD series.Great Show.You guys show the way metal detecting really is.The tips you give on researching an area are useful to detectorists of all ages.
I wish Dish Network would pick this up,it would be a great addition to the outdoor channel.
Keep up the great work.
Jeff R,Dallas,Ga.

My wife and I have really enjoyed viewing your "Exploring Historys Treasures," and would like our local cable company (GCI) to carry your TV series. It not only covers metal detecting, which has a good following in Alaska, but the history of our great country.Good luck with the series and we hope to see it here soon,
Harold S.

Frank bring back your tv series. The new show SUCKS!

To Exploring History's Treasures Producers, just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your DVD.  I regret that I cannot watch your shows on my local dish channels.  I have loaned the DVD to several members of my metal detecting club and all of they had rave reviews. Hopefully one day it will be available nationwide and everyone can have the opportunity to watch it.

I watched the episodes when the video arrived, great show. It made me feel I was searching with Frank and his buddy again in New York. I really like how Frank layered the now gone homes over the current vacant sites. I'm looking forward to seeing the next installments of Exploring Historys Treasures show.  Thanks again Frank...great show. HH Stan

"I have been teaching local history for 22 years. And when Mr. Pandozzi came to our Junior high class with a video of his TV series, my classes were speechless. I think they learned more from his series in one viewing than what I tried to teach in an entire semester."
Mary B. Teacher

"I was excited, captivated and feeling adventurous after viewing the first episode of Ghost Towns. I've driven by hundreds of these areas not knowing they existed. Hurry up second episode.
Jill M. Fayettevile, NY

Dear Frank, thank you so much for sending the dvd. I wonder if it is possible to let me know when you bring any more out as i would like to add to the one i have, many thanks.

I enjoyed the dvd very much and i think you two are very good on it.I found the  metal detecting very interesting and liked seeing the finds, coins and buttons, spoons, etc.You two certainly look like you enjoy each others company a great deal. Have you ever considered selling your dvds in this country either through UK ebay or  metal detector dealers in this country?, it might well be worth ago.If you need good UK dealers addresses or phone numbers, i would be only too happy to help. The quality of your dvd is excellent and i watched all the episodes one after the other with fascination.Once again, many thanks for taking the time to send me your excellent dvd and please say hello to your buddy from me, regards, Alan R, UK

Hi Frank

"Exploring History's Treasures, you have a Great show can't wait for more."
Jay L, Warners NY

" Hi, my name is M---  P---. I recently purchased the Exploring Histories Treasuers DVD and loved it. My brother also watched it and told his friends about it. Will you be on TV in Canada? I am from Ontario Canada. I hope so. Thank you."

"Frank...  The old Logging camps series sounds very interesting! Its about time the stations show us local area history as it is not only exciting but important to document as You know...history is slowly disintegrating & all that will be left is the words & future generations will benefit in the effort being done to record it! Good Metal Detecting to You!!"
...Dan, Buffalo NY

Frank.. Thanks again! looking forward to the DVD. Wish Your series would air here in Buffalo,NY. It is tough to get syndicated & I wish You luck. Keep up the good work & keep detecting!


I really liked the DVD. I have allready watched it several times and learn something new each time. It would be great if it were on TV around here, I would surely make it point to watch. Keep up the great work and I hope to see more in the near future.
Bob E, PA

Hi Frank,
We watched your video and we really enjoyed it.  And yes we would like to see your TV series on TV. And one more question do you sell shirts like the one you wear in episode 4 Exploring History. Thank you and let us know.
Thank you, Ray and Dawn, Ohio

Hey Frank I watched all 5 episodes......Man oh man, I am hooked. What away to end that DVD on episode #5. Now tell me what was that find? My whole family is wanting to know have them on the edge of there seat...begging for more. My wife said they cant leave us hangin, that its not fair. Now when can i get my hands on more? I cant wait.......give me all the details. I will say you guys are on to a great thing here. Its Fun, comical, exciting, and full of suspense....almost like being there with you.
Larry B, Indiana

"Hi Frank... watched Your series today and loved it! One thing though... What the heck did John find towards the end in episode 5 ?????
Your series was very entertaining as You really have to watch closely to appreciate its value in the knowledge the series represents & the counless hours it takes to learn & investigate the subject matter as the history just does not present itself out of thin air. It is VERY important that people know of the early settlers,who they were,the hardships of the time & who made the country what is today / The early Pioneers/settlers.
This series is of interest to Young and old alike as very few take the time to do what You do and that is to document and tell the story of our past history
Its a shame that more television stations do not air such fine work as You did regarding this series! This is the high season for "Reality Shows" and what better than the reality show: Exploring History's Treasures" a show that is entertaining and educational."
Happy Hunting! Dan,Buffalo,NewYork

Loved watching the DVD with my two boys (8 & 10). When I first put in the DVD, my kids were mad & wanted me to switch it back to the Disney channel.

Once we started watching it, they were enthralled. My oldest got his first metal detector for X-mas in December, my other son turned 8 on 1/13/06, so he wanted one too! Of course, I got him one too! 

Since the weather in SW Ohio is not great this time of year, they have only gone out 2-3 times. They can't wait for warmer & dryer weather!!!
Anyway, after getting them hooked on the DVD & them making sure we watched all 5 episodes, they were completely crushed at not finding out what you found. Just thought you would like to know. We watched the DVD over a week ago, and they keep asking me every day if I have emailed you to find out what was in that hole! FRANK, JOHN......WHAT IS IN THAT DARN HOLE   
I have my guesses, but realize it could be anything from a casket to the "treasure box full of gold". My boys are hoping it was the Doctor's gold. 

Anyway, just wanted to let you know our response to the DVD. Can't wait until you have a regular series on TV. I hope it's on a channel I can access locally, or I guess I'll be ordering a DVD subscription.  "

I really loved the DVD.
Looking forward to more EHT to come.

"Frank, I would like to watch your show.  We live in Sioux Falls, SD.  I have a 5 year old son who also enjoyed watching the shows.  What we enjoyed the most was seeing what was dug up. I also enjoyed the hints of how to locate ghost towns and buildings.  I'm hooked!"  Thanks" Rick  SD

`"Hi ther Frank I just watched the DVD Ghost towns of the East, I learned some new tricks and tips from it. I think it is great because here in N.H. we dont have any type of show or series related to metal detecting.I would love to see N.H. public your series as would my club members as well. It was fun to watch and I can relate to the flora and fauna, unlike others I have watched that are set in England or the desert. The only question I have is: WHAT THE HECK DID YOU GUYS END UP DIGGING UP THAT DAY? the episode ends before you describe it. I have to admit, its like one of those StarWars movies where you wonder who Darth Vader is! HA HA.... Thanks much." Tammie G. N.H.

I'm new to metal detecting and have been reading and watching everything I can get my hands on.  This was one of the best educational DVDs on how to research productive search areas from the past that I have come a cross.  In episode two you really touched on how to use old survey maps to find untouched sites.  There is nothing on my local cable channels that supplies this type of information and I would love to be able to see your further adventures and hopefully pick up some additional helpful hints.
 Thanks again and best luck with your series.  I hope to see you in the field someday.
John, NJ

 "Frank and John
Just watched the Ghost Towns in the East DVD series.Great Show. I wish cable TV would pick this up,it would be a great addition to the outdoor channel.
 Keep up the great work."

After I emailed you about your g/town dvd I went back to your website. I realized I could have bought all of your series as downloads, so I did.  The "logging camps" was exciting, and the French & Indian war series site was interesting & well filmed. You have a way of showing history that is far superior than anything I have seen. I watch the history network and your Exploring histories Treasures should be there. Will we be able to get your show on cable in New Jersey? I told the members in my metal detecting club about your series. I gave them your website adress. Maybe you can come to our club and talk to the members? Let me know if you would like to meet with us. Thanks…Jerry W, NJ

To everyone at exploring histories treasures,
I don't remember giving a testimonial for anything I 've purchased. Everyt'ng we buy today is jk. I find better junk in the ground when metal detecting, lol. But this time I'm breaking my rule by sending you this email. You fellas have a "WINNER". I purchased the ghost towns in the east Dvd from ebay and I've watched it twice in two days. How 'd ya ever come up with this idea? Never mind, I'm glad ya did!  I have to buy all the series. You've hooked me. I'll probably call my local cable station and tell'em they better get your series on Tv or I'm not pay'en for any more of their lousy service.  If you boys are ever near Tucson please call me. I'd love to hang with you and detect." My hats off to yu!
Spencer C,  Tucson, AZ
Ps: I used to live in Rochester ny. We moved away when I was 10. I'm familiar with the g/towns here in the west, but never would have thought them to be in the east. When yur ready to film out here I'll hook ya up with the rite people.

Dear Frank,
 I just wanted to thank you again for being a guest speaker in my 8th grade English classes. My students found your presentation and ghost town dvd both informative and fun. You really captured their interest with your knowledge, and the use of the artifacts and the metal detector was a real plus.
 It's always a treat when I can help students to connect what we read and write about in class with what is happening around them in the outside world. I deeply appreciate you sharing it with my students. 
 Bill Z,
English Teacher

I just finished the watching the ghost town dvd.  It was terrific. I want to watch the next one, but the family is waiting to go out.  I would love to see your series on our local cable station.  I am in Charter Cable territory.  Keep up the great work and I look forward to future shows.
Thanks again.

"Hi, Frank,

"I am very interested in seeing "Exploring History's Treasures" go into syndication. Since I first heard about the series several months ago, I have been eagerly awaiting for it to appear on television. I think the mixture of history, the outdoors, and the thrill of the search would make this program highly enjoyable to many audiences. I would compare it to History's Mysteries meets Antiques Road Show. It is sure to be a winner, and I will be waiting for it to hit the airwaves in Columbus."

"I live in Maryland. Is it possible to see your series in my state? If not do you sell video etc ?
