Default BBC2 test transmission films from the 70s

Dear all on the forum. Does any one remember the BBC2 test transmission films from the 70s I think? They were transmitted in the afternoons for Half-hour or so between the test card. The one in particular I would like to see again is the Canadian red Indian, or native American now, Making a canoe the only tool used was a large knife. All the materials used came from the Forrest. You see the making from start to finish when the canoe is launched and the builder paddles away in it. I always found it fascinating and always stopped work for a cuppa if it was on. Any one have a copy? All your expenses paid. I have 2 grandchildren now I know they will love to see it. Martin.
Also comes to mind are the BP films Boolong and bola on the river. And The desert oil pipe line story.
