I remember & surely have the clip in question in my collection but cannot check. I'm recalling 'mid-1980s' - maybe one of those annual PBS 'gala of stars' hosted by Beverly Sills? Another possibility: the original VHS version of 'Natasha - a dance entertainment' (or similar title) that also included excerpts from 'On Your Toes'? I also remember that Makarova dances part of 'White Swan pdd' in the Margot Fonteyn 'Magic of Dance' series but without the comic chat. Alas, I'm nowhere close to my collection nowadays so cannot check the suggested titles but perhaps my ideas can provide 'clues' or shake someone else's memory?
