Trying to find memory-holed "60 Minutes" episode from 1986... can anyone help?

I've been trying to find either a video or transcript of a "60 Minutes" segment that originally aired on November 23, 1986 entitled "Out of Control." Unfortunately, it looks like CBS has memory-holed it (probably out of embarrassment.)
I haven't found it in any of the (extensive) library resources I have available in NY -- even the Paley Center for Media doesn't have it. And when I contacted CBS, I got the following response: "Unfortunately, this episode of 60 Minutes is not available for release in either video or transcript form."
Of course, this makes me doubly determined to get a copy.
Does anyone have ideas about where I might track it down? I can do an interlibrary loan... I just need to find someone who's got a copy of the darn thing.
Any assistance much appreciated... thanks, hive mind!
