archives which are stored in Washington, DC at The
Library of Congress.

if you do not have a DVD player.) If these shows
have to be copied from the Library of Congress
archives, they can be costly, but well worth the
investment to have a one-of-a-kind family treasure.
If a show has already been copied through the
archives, the costs go down considerably.
