That civil engineering is to gain a broader audience through programmes such as the BBC's Secrets of the Ancients is to be applauded (NCE 11 November).
However, in your list of those who contributed to last Tuesday's broadcast you missed out one person who played a pivotal role in the making of the programme, one Miguel Meki.
Miguel is a final year undergraduate civil engineer who, while employed as a sandwich student, answered a plea from the BBC for Italian-speaking engineers to assist in organising the project.
Miguel identified suitable local contractors, liaised between the BBC production team, Ove Arup and the contractor, negotiated the final prices and helped organise the work during filming. Clive Powell (M), firstname.lastname@example.org
