The archives at http://lists.debian.org are generated by MHonArc, a tool
that has mbox format files as its input (or perhaps Maildir, in any case, a
regular mail archive format). AFAIK the archives in mbox format are not
accessible to the general public (probably to limit address harvesting
opportunities for spammers etc.). You may want to contact listmaster at
lists dot debian dot org to obtain copies.
TV is the worst of both worlds. It's not as good at words as radio is
because the pictures are a distraction which demand attention, and it's not
as good as cinema because the pictures are not nearly as good.
