Default "Missing" videos from TV broadcasts - anyone have them?

FF have made hundreds of appearances on TV shows over the years and most of them still exist online today in some form, DVDs and Youtube etc. There are a handful that don't however, they've gone missing and don't circulate at all to my knowledge.

So I thought I would put out a plea because someone must have these on a tape somewhere. Here is the list:

October 8th, 1999 - ABC Studios, Melbourne (Australia)

Learn To Fly
Interview
Breakout

November 29th, 1999 - Total Request Live (US)
Learn To Fly
Larger Than Life (cover/goofing)
Stacked Actors

January 9th, 2002 - Total Request Live (US)
Interview
Outside (jam)
Crazy Little Thing Called Love (jam)

March 4th 2002 - Late Word With Zach Galifianakis (US - VH1)
The One
Learn To Fly
(All My Life also played but I believe not broadcast)

August 30th 2002 - ULU Student Union (UK)
Disenchanted Lullaby from the soundcheck was broadcast on Kerrang! TV.

November 29th 2002 - The Marquee, London (UK)
Times Like These, supposedly broadcast on Channel 5. Not sure which program.

April 4th 2003 - Jimmy Kimmel Live! (US)
Times Like These
Low
Everlong
Stacked Actors
All My Life
(I believe only TLT and Low were broadcast)

April 9th 2003 - Tonight Show with Jay Leno (US)
Times Like These

August 19th, 2003 - Total Request Live (UK)

Times Like These (acoustic)

December 10th 2003 - Billboard Music Awards (US)
All My Life

Ideally we want to find them in good quality, so on a VHS or DVD. If you have them let me know and if they're on VHS I can sort out getting them transferred to digital for everyone.

There also a lot of TV spots we only have in poor quality but there are too many to list here, just let me know if you have anything that you taped off TV and i'll let you know if it might be needed.

I have none of those, except maybe one or two in audio only (which obviously isn't of much help). I'm still trying to figure out this one live performance of Breakout that I caught on MTV around 2000, where Dave and the guys were behind this fence-like structure and he was sort of 'talking' the second verse in the song. I haven't seen it since!

I have a 30 minute program from MTV Latin America called 'Hora Prima', an interview during the TNLTL era.

I thiiiink it's not on the web. I've been meaning to get it transferred for a decade or so but haven't.
If interested, let me know.

Hmm, not entirely sure on that one. Did it seem like a TV show performance or just a broadcast from a live show?

Could you maybe take a photo of it on your TV screen so I can try and ID it?

My mistake, meant to write Stacked Actors.

I'm pretty sure it was a broadcast from a live show. Like I said, I haven't seen it since, but it's always stuck out to me for those two reasons... the fence between the band and the crowd and Dave not 'singing' the second verse! I'm guessing it was MTV or MTV2 sometime between the fall of 1999 and the fall of 2000. Not sure what show or concert though.

I know I've a bunch on tape because I traded TV appearances but about 10 years ago I lost interest & now I don't even own a VHS so they're all boxed in my loft.
The US TRLs I definitely had & I know I've the UK TRL because I was there for the recording (there is a crappy version on YouTube).

As for trevgreg's Breakout - T4 showed a Breakout performance inbetween Dawsons Creek one Sunday morning that apparently was the band outside on a dock or pier... I never had any luck finding it.

Sound bizarre, not ringing any bells. How substancial are we talking with the fence, like huge 15 odd feet barrier? Sounds really odd.

Sounds good. If I could find someone to transfer them would you be interested in sending them out? I used to have a VHS transfer setup but an old tape wiped out my VCR and I've never got a replacement. I'm sure I could find someone in the UK though.

That sounds just as strange. Any idea where that one was, country wise?

I know it does! I remember it quite vividly though for some reason, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't a dream. From what I remember, it seemed like it was indoor, and it was a tall barrier between the band and the crowd like a welded wire mesh fence or something. It was just so odd to me with the barrier and how Dave was singing Breakout differently (this might've been around the time I was becoming a fan).

This doesn't sound familiar, but it was so long ago that for all I know, maybe this had something to do with it! Not sure off that description though...

I'll try, I'm not even sure we still have a VHS player.

There's a clip of the Larger Than Life cover on YouTube but it's pretty crappy quality - both audio and video are best described as "blah".
