Help: looking for... 'Planet Of The Apes' - TV movies

Would anyone happen to have copies/preservations of The Planet Of The Apes TV series edited into movies, with introductions/closing chapters by Roddy McDowall as Galen? I have the official DVD release and wanted to experience a different viewing 😃

I’m aware of the Galen opening/closing segments available on http://potatv.kassidyrae.com

The TV movies are named:
Back to the Planet of the Apes (“Escape from Tomorrow” & “The Trap”)
Forgotten City of the Planet of the Apes (“Gladiators” & “Legacy”)
Treachery and Greed on the Planet of the Apes (“Horse Race” & “The Tyrant”)
Life, Liberty and Pursuit on the Planet of the Apes (“The Surgeon” & “The Interrogation”)
Farewell to the Planet of the Apes (“Tomorrow’s Tide” & “Up Above The World So High”)

Apologies if this is the incorrect forum to ask.

Many thanks

Not sure I’ve seen those air anywhere since the late 1980’s. I never saw them with the Galen intros. There might have been a run on the SciFi channel in the 90’s. 16mm prints do exist though.

I just saw Back to the Planet of the Apes on the Spanish language network TeleXitos this afternoon, dubbed into Spanish of course. This might mean they are still shown in English somewhere?
