Note: These recordings have been edited with a heavy hand, twice.
  1. The original unknown owner who made the recordings edited out all start and end credits, introductions and recaps and cliffhangers.
  2. Some years later, a second unknown owner attempted to put it all back together but not working from original master tapes.
So these can hardly be considered authentic reconstructions.
