Please help me track down the source of the footage of John Lennon and Stew Albert
that appears at 0:42-0:44 in the MSNBC segment, What is John Lennon's lasting legacy?"
, which aired on The Daily Rundown on December 9, 2010.

Portions of the same segment were used on the Colbert Report on July 11, 2011, as well.
In the 3 seconds of video I'm interested in, there is a shot of John Lennon, Stew Albert, and another cameraman. I would very much like to find out the source of this material, and to find out if there is more footage or any still shots, and if the person who owns the rights would sell me a copy. For that matter, any information about where this came from, who shot it, or who the other cameraman is would be great.
My wife is Stew's daughter, and grew up hearing tales of time he spent with Lennon. Until this popped up on Colbert this summer, she had never seen it, in photo or video. I would love to give her a copy of the full source material for Hanukkah this year if I can make that happen.
I figure someone at MSNBC must know the source of the video, and must have cleared the rights before putting it on the air. I tried contacting them several months ago through one of the options on their contact us page (I think I tried "media inquiries"), but never heard back. I did not try Colbert because I assume they just got rights to the whole MSNBC segment under whatever licenses MSNBC already had.
Any assistance would be very much appreciated
