Here is the footage presented by Charles Enderlin to the French Court in 2007. He admitted editing them, and the court, alas, did not see fit to demand the unedited version.

There are multiple testimonies to the contents of the heavily-contested France2 tapes (aka, the “rushes”) shot on September 30, 2000.
