Questions arose of possibly merging with the science producers’ conference as Achilles Media attempted to set the stage for the formation of an advisory board to oversee the next World Congress of History Producers. Achilles Media principal Robert Montgomery said that organizing the history congress provides a "symbiotic relationship" with the Banff Television Festival, which it also hosts since taking over from the bankrupt Banff Television Foundation (BTF) last April (CCR, April 22/04). BTF had a contract with the science producers’ association to run its conference as well but the contract terminated with the bankruptcy, and this year the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival took over running the World Congress of Science Producers.
