Default 1986 Ian and Sylvia Reunion Concert?

Does anyone know where one might go about getting a complete unedited copy of the 1986 Ian and Sylvia Reunion Concert? The clips shown on YouTube are some of the most impressive Lightfoot performance footage I've seen from that particular era and I am very eager to see the entire video of the concert. Surely if it was shown on TV at one time then a copy of the footage must still exist somewhere? Any leads would be greatly appreciated

Yesterday I was trying to fnd details of the 1986 Ian and Sylvia Reunion concert and found yet another of his rants at
http://www.chromehorse.net/rants/rants2009/20091218_lovinsound.htm


I also succeeded in finding that the complete video of that significant concert has now been added to the ever increasing collection of Lightfoot items on YouTube and is now eminently viewable at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWNA8gD0jUY
(If that video is not displayed, perhaps one of those who evidently possess the magic power to get this silly forum to behave itself could PLEASE step in and do it for me)

Thank you my dear for getting the video to appear here
I do not know how you do it because from what you previously said you simply used the HTML embed code in the highlit text box that YouTube provides but there are two problems doing that that I can see
1.the original highlit box for this video looks remarkably like this:-

the actual text that is highlighted (I prefer my own word "highlit") is actually pure HTML "source code" and is precisely
<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//http://www.youtube.com/embed/hWNA8gD0jUY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Some years ago I discovered how to paste such a code snippet into a blank text file that when saved as a file with the *.htm file extension was then itself a web page that could then display the YouTube video on a web page of my choosing example a five part Oscar Peterson video (plus a single complete version) on
http://www.johnfowles.org.uk/oscar/
But for a most obscure reason that I fail to understand the logic behind that code (as in the example above) now omits the vital http://
prefix from the actual YouTube URL as it is now displayed highlit in the box as in the example in my screenshot above
I have found that that omission renders the code useless for previewing a prospective web page on my computer
I have now tested the corrected version i.e.


<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//http://www.youtube.com/embed/hWNA8gD0jUY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
in the test forum and it certainly fails to show the video as it will no doubt in his posting when I make it

2.In any case the site owner (Florian) has on the face of it disabled the use of any HTML code whatsoever in postings here
 
I have never understood why that ban is necessary because for any web page to exist and in particular display a video of course it must include the requisite HTML code regardless and in Char's successful posting it includes HTML coding to create a data table ny using the three HTML "tags" <td>.<embed> and <object> as follows:
<td class="panelsurround" align="center"><object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hWNA8gD0jUY"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/hWNA8gD0jUY" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent"></embed></object></td>
Char I am serious please detail more clearly how you (and Tony ) achieved this magic
Please Sydney or other hooligans no snide remarks
If you cannot help me then shut up
