I was at Apple at that time and only remember one Knowledge Navigator video, not two (though I'd be curious to hear about a second one). The version on Google linked from the digibarn page that was mentioned here is about as good a quality as I have seen. I have a comparable quality copy here, if that one proves difficult to download or you want it as a .mpg instead of a .flv file (if that's what Google's copy is--not sure):

My upload bandwidth is pretty terrible, so please stick to Google's version unless you actually want to download this, and please don't pass on the URL to anyone else. Thanks.

P.S. Alan Kay, Ann Marion, and the rest of Vivarium program did produce an interesting mockup of another interface involving the ecological simulation work that was being done for Vivarium. I wonder if that's what that person was referring to. It wasn't a Sculley project, but I imagine Sculley knew about it and showed it or had Alan show it to other muckey-mucks at some point. Dunno.
