Why the fuck is it so difficult to find original live chess footage on Youtube?

Am I doing something wrong? Am I expecting too much? Am I not seeing something here?

It seems to me that there is virtually no original chess content available on Youtube. I don’t want five hours of commentary from a guy I don’t know, I want the actual game footage (which has professional commentary).

I’ve only recently found a new interest in this marvelous game and I’m honestly confused. Can ancient chess footage from the 70s really be harder to obtain than blockbuster movies, charts music and scenes of beheadings?

Are there any alternatives?

Help!
