Jim Henson's memorial - is there a complete video?

Hello everyone,

I was watching the YouTube videos of Jim Henson's memorial the other day, and they were so lovely and so sad, and almost made my cry.

I started to wonder if all of it was filmed. I Googled it, and found one person on CraigsList and yardsellr.com selling a DVD of the complete memorial "taped on a personal recorder". After a bit more looking I found this thread from MC: http://www.muppetcentral.com/forum/threads/jim-hensons-funeral.22873/page-4

Can someone please enlighten me. Was it all professionally filmed and is that what was being talked about in the MC thread? If so, do you think that's the same as what the person is selling?

I know it was recorded, but never intended to air or be released commercially. The book Street Gang says that there were offers to have it broadcast, but the Hensons turned it down.
