National Geographic Channel CEO David Lyle said Wednesday an apology is unwarranted because the show gave a fair and accurate depiction of colony life. Caught in the middle are the stars of the show who say they have been told by elders to "tell the truth" but some of whom now fear possible excommunication. Meet The Hutterites" was supposed to be a National Geographic Channel documentary about the German-speaking agricultural community of Protestants in central Montana.American Colony Meet the Hutterites 2012 Season 1 Episode 5
Instead, Hofer said, the producers turned it into a reality TV show that encouraged discord within the community by pitting generations against each other.
Situations and story lines were invented and the people were told what to do and say while the camera was on, he said. The result was an inaccurate depiction that has damaged the reputation of Hutterites everywhere, he said.
They also make use of some technology, especially when it comes to agricultural production. But the extent to which the Hutterites let in the modern world and the effect of that on their cultural and traditional values is one of the themes in the part series about the King Ranch colony 10 miles west of Lewistown that aired earlier this year.
Producer Jeff Collins said he believes the negative response to the series originated with Hutterite elders in Canada. Those elders, he said, are unhappy that the Hutterites on the show chose to use the camera to talk about education, the role of women and the struggles of adapting to modern ways.
Most on the King Ranch colony are pleased with and proud of the show, Collins said, but he believes they are now under external pressure to lodge a protest. In June, the bishops for the three sects of about 50, Hutterites in colonies in North America said in a joint statement that they were "deeply disappointed" in the show and that it presented a "distorted" and contrived image of their faith.
Lyle said he stands by the producer and that the show went through National Geographic's fact-checking protocol. We believe it's a fair and accurate portrayal of the life in the part time that we were there," Lyle said.
John Hofer told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Collins arrived at the colony, found their life too boring for TV, and persuaded them to do things they never would normally do.
There were also many articles in the s, 40s and 50s about the individual states and their resources, along with supplement maps of each state. Many of these articles were written by longtime staff such as Frederick Simpich.

In later years, articles became outspoken on issues such as environmental issuesdeforestationchemical pollutionglobal warmingand endangered species. Series of articles were included focusing on the history and varied uses of specific products such as a single metal, gem, food crop, or agricultural product, or an archaeological discovery.
Occasionally an entire month's issue would be devoted to a single country, past civilization, a natural resource whose future is endangered, or other theme. In recent decades, the National Geographic Society has unveiled other magazines with different focuses. Whereas in the past, the magazine featured lengthy expositions, recent issues have shorter articles.
