There may not be one. Up until the mid 70's the networks didn't save much of anything. They said they didn't have room to store things. Also VCR's weren't too easy to get on the retail market. So the average person didn't have access to record it. Unless a local NBC affiliate should have it stored in their vaults somewhere it may not exist. The Reds put out a record after the 72 season that had the radio calls of that game and other moments from the 72 season. I don't have that one but I would think someone on RZ would. I have the records from the 75 and 76 seasons but not that one.
