Depending on the show this is VERY, VERY UNLIKELY. No one is going to want
to license an OFF AIR copy. After 30 days ( or is it 60) it is not legal to
keep unless it is for personal use. You can contact the producers about
licensing a copy that THEY would provide but I tend to be cynical that most
TV shows would spend time on this
