Question for Randy: Equatorial Africa at EPCOT

Hi all,

I've been digging and digging lately for information about EPCOT's lost Equatorial Africa pavilion, and searching like crazy for audiovisual evidence from the two shows that were to be created for the pavilion - Heartbeat of Africa and Africa Rediscovered. I've heard in the past that filming had been done for Africa Rediscovered, and I was wondering if Randy had ever seen hide or hair of this in his excavations? Any sound, or any film? I'm just curious to know if it exists....

cheers everyone
