Richard Dawkins is a prominent atheist, but also an ethologist, a zoologist, and evolutionary biologist. His programs have provided entertainment and education to be people overseas, and to everyone who has bought his DVDs. But his stuff remains sadly off-grid here in the States, and we, the undersigned, would like that to change.
We would like to see all, or at least some, of Richard Dawkins' documentaries on the Science Channel, the National Geographic Channels, the Discovery channel, and/or the History channels. Here is a list of Richard Dawkins' material:
