Yes, that's the one that is generally available almost everywhere I
look. Someone with access to the film source could remake this using
H.264 and the result might be quite stunning. I can play this one back
at 2X without too much degradation and that may have to do for now.

I also found a brief piece (TV spot ad length) I call "Park Bench"
because that's the setting. This is not on UNNA.

I don't know if this Park Bench spot is the second of the two videos
Sculley commissioned or not. Any help on that question is appreciated.

With the, you can subscribe yo the channel containing these
