Fellow collector Robert M., who provided these captures, writes that this source first appeared on a series of TV shows from
the 1990s called Fejeton I, Fejeton II, and Reflekton (they would appear to be Czech-language programmes). It’s also available from
a re-broadcast on the documentary special The Day the Beatles Came to Spain (where these particular captures originate from).
