This is may not be video, however, does anyone know where I may find footage of the 1970 Varna Men's competition. Hideo Fukagawa and Alexei Yudenich were both awarded the Silver, no gold was awarded that year. There is a very nice anniversary party being planned and to have the footage would truly be very special. Thank you for any help you are able to provide.
