Thank you for writing to PBS. We are glad you enjoy our programming.

COSMOS is an expired PBS program. PBS holds rights to its programming for
three years following the original broadcast date. After this time, the
program rights revert to the producers and PBS is therefore no longer able
to distribute these expired programs to our member stations. We are sorry we
are unable to rebroadcast your favorite PBS programming.

Home video cassettes of COSMOS can be ordered through your local video store from The Turner Home Entertainment Company, which now owns distribution rights.

All final program scheduling decisions are determined locally by each of our
member stations. Please contact your local public broadcasting station for
information on their broadcast schedule, including possible rebroadcasts of
a PBS program. Postal and email addresses for PBS member stations are
available on PBS ONLINE at <http://www.pbs.org/stations/>.

If you would like to purchase a home video of a PBS program in the future,
please contact PBS Home Video at 800/645-4PBS. For educational use of PBS programming, call PBS Video at 800/344-3337.

Thank you again for writing and we hope you continue to enjoy and support
your local PBS member station.
