My sense is that viewers don't care about the present day currency
of the info that Sagan presents here. Like many of us, they are
in love with the passion and sense of wonder that Sagan conveys in
this classic series.

We added a videocassette set of Cosmos two years ago--it has
checked out 31 times so far.

We added a DVD set about a year ago--it has checked out 22 times.
