Whilst undertaking a recent trawl through the photo archive at Associated Press (AP) for old photos connected to the ISDT and its venues I found a couple of news reel clips which although not clearly labelled were of the ISDT. I have now added these to the video page but here is the video of the 1969 event held in Garmisch Parternkirchen, West Germany as it was then.
