2004 Olympics Opening Ceremony in HD?

I'm looking for a copy of the 2004 Summer Olympics opening ceremony video in a high quality HD format (like x264 720p about 3GB/hour).

One of my relatives was a participant in the games and would like to keep a copy of the video for posterity. I know the ceremony was recorded and archived in some possibly proprietary (Sony MPEG-4 on Digital Beta?) HD formats, but was broadcast mostly in SD/480p as HD direct-to-home satellite and cable services were uncommon in 2004. We can pay any reasonable cost for media duplication and shipping, but because this is for personal use, not for rebroadcast or any commercial purposes if it costs many hundreds of dollars to obtain that would be prohibitive.
