What do we know of the "Real" Footage?

On a re-read of the source material, I've put together a list of the references to the footage, with page numbers as found in the UK paperback: I give the page on which the chapter starts as well as the page on which the refererence appears in order to aid navigation with other editions. It doesn't amount to a great deal, and it's exciting that we got so much from it.
