More Modern Marvels, Please!!!
While I am extremely excited about the release of Modern Marvels by iTunes, I want more and other topics. These shows are great teaching tools for science and technology classes, however, most of these are about buildings and civil engineering structures. As a technology teacher, I am much more interested in your series on engines, horsepower, magnets, metals/heavy metals, glue, paint, ink, and many more!
You need all of the episodes of modern marvels
This is a disappointing list of the modern marvels shows. I happen to love modern marvels and iTunes needs to get the rest of the episodes.
Add more shows!
Only 15 modern Marvels. Please add the rest of the shows. I am looking for the overseas highway and the pacific coast highway. PLEASE! Other than that this is a great show but add the other shows.
