Finding Rick Steve's Europe 80/s90s episodes

Hi Rick Nick's,
I really love watching Rick Steve's tv shows especially old ones. But couldn't find much old episodes. I live in UAE. Does anyone know how can I view those or if they are available on Amazon or something. I am actively looking for those episodes. Pls let me know.

I could be wrong but I don't think he was on television in the '80s. I'm thinking 1991 or 1992. Might try eBay. Google Travels in Europe with Rick Steves as I think the show was called back then.

I started recording the shows at least five years ago. At that time I tried to find a list of what existed, and my records show programs going back to 2001. There may well be earlier ones.

In case you are not aware, many of the shows are available for watching right on this website: https://www.ricksteves.com/watch-read-listen/video/tv-show. I wouldn't be surprised if they have the most recent show on every topic posted. I do see some with 2001 dates.

A search of Worldcat (library holdings) shows the record below. Seems that 4 libraries in the US own this. At least you have something to search for if you look at ebay, etc. I copied this info from the Worldcat record.
