Cape Town to Cairo film

Is there an active link to watch the 1959 Cape Town to Cairo film? The link that Pee Wee posted last July does not work, at least for me. I have never seen this footage, although I did finally acquire a copy of the Lillie Douglass book documenting this trip. Any help would be much appreciated.

Cape Town to Cairo Film

The original film was taken by Pete Turner, now a well reknown pro-photographer.

It was release to be shown on TV, dealer lots, and organizational events.

The original master film is lost, or at least not known where it resides.

There was a modified film made for showing on TV. This is what exists today. It has been copied, re-copied and the existing film is not the best quality. Also it was edited without the coolaborative direction of one of the African Caravanners. The footage sequences are out of order, probably for story telling.

It is possible to order a CD from Airstream, Inc.

For several months the discontinued 2009 African Caravan had it posted on their web site.

That the story about the Cape Town to Cario film.
