A new sensational retrieval: story (in two parts) of a rare 1970 TEB TV French broadcast hidden on the Web!!!

Unfortunately, it is not available on
But maybe there's a way to ask for it if duly authorised :
"The service is intended for audiovisual professionals working on projects that incorporate Ina documents, and potential buyers or prescribers of operating rights. These professionals include: researchers, producers, journalists, authors, directors, broadcasters, programmers, and exhibition designers..."

So I have contacted the Inamedia site trying to register me with the aim to get the video, but they answered me this: 

"Dear Luca Ferrari, We are sorry to inform you that we cannot register you to use Inamediapro, as the website is reserved for professionals working in the audiovisual sector.
You may, however, register on our website designed for public use:
If you are a student, a researcher or teacher working on French radio and audiovisual heritage, and can show that your research project requires you to consult documents under French legal radio and television deposit, we would suggest you get in touch with Inathèque.
Best regards.
The Ina team "

Thus I've jumped to the site ( to register me and verify if that programme is available, but unfortunately it's not. Probably it's non available anymore or it's never been available...

Could I give up to it and risk to leave this treasure buried there?
Keep in touch and you'll see it in the second part of this new Web adventure...

(end of part one - to be continued)
