Great work here. Nice to see this info online. I've been looking for a GTK episode that you have on your list, 737 B MARK BARNES REPORT ON GREVILLE STREET, PRAHRAN 1973 24-Sep-73, and would love to have it. Do you know if this one is still around and how to get access?
I just do a bit of my own private research from time to time on 70's and 80's Australian TV, looking through old TV guides and the like, and was given a copy of that list by a friend who had obtained it from the ABC (you can buy this info from the ABC for a small fee). I found it interesting and since it came in a spreadsheet format I was able to cut and paste it so I just thought I would share it with others.
I believe that everything on that list should exist in the ABC archives, possibly in Sydney. I don't know if it has all been transferred from its original source (probably mostly 16mm) to digital or whether it has just been archived. Rage often play the same items over and over so it may be that only some of it has been done.
Music items will have copyright on them so they would not be available unless they happen to air on Rage/ABC but a general item like that wouldn't have any restrictions I would think.
Your best bet would be to contact ABC Content sales and they could let you know:
