Dear National Geographic:
Can we please have more older shows from the 80's (and before/beyond) for purchasing? Maybe not everything is as relevant anymore, but the music and narration are still pretty retro and cool. Plus it's money you'll be getting for more adventures at the cost of nothing but releasing your cache of mildly embarrassing 80's documentaries! Win-Win! Thanks.
