Of course they exist on film. The only way they can exist in ANY other video
format -- PAL, NTSC, Digibeta or anything else -- is if they first exist on
*film* which is transferred to video. WB went back and re-telecine'd the
negatives to produce two versions of the show during the period in which B5 was
in production, and after we wrapped.
