Being rich is being satisfied with the things you got. I don't need the
products they want to get rid of as fast as possible.

I do not agree, I often watch German TV, lots of nature in its programming
and the same goes for some NBC and BBC programms.
Newsreports never give any backgroundviews so I use the newspapers

commercials" TV newsbulletins.
TV news is very good at showing people getting in and out of cars :-)
Some movies give lots of landscape and BBC and some others give worldwide
