      It is also possible, with their limited budget, that they are checking all
      possible sources for decent copies before they have to go into the more
      expensive original sources....not to mention just finding the stuff in the
      first place.

      It is amazing how easily you can "misplace" something over the
      decades...even if it hasn't moved from it's original spot.

      If they had been able to go to a vault and pull out all of the 35mm copies
      NBC had used, and they were in decent shape (without having turned red)
      then it might have been released by now.
