It's Your Move (Series) (1964-1967; 1974-1979)

It's Your Move
It's Your Move was played before a live studio audience, and spiced the familiar game of charades by adding a time factor, in auction form. The two competing teams bid for the opportunity to enact - and, hopefully, to guess - an unknown phrase. The team offering the lower bid was awarded the floor, and one member acted out the charade while the other team member tried to solve it within the time put forth in the initial bid. If the team failed, the prize was awarded to the opponent. The winning team retained its championship until defeated. However, champions were limited to a ten-game tenure.

Paul Hanover hosted a weekday afternoon edition which debuted September 14, 1964 on CTV and a weekly nighttime edition which debuted October 19, 1964.

Sidney M. Cohen re-developed the series with creators Art Baer and Ben Joelson and the show was revived in 1974, produced again in Montreal. The new series was emceed by George Balcan for 1 season before Paul Hanover's return as host.

I was a contestant on this show in 1976-77 and would like to know how I can get a copy of the actual episodes I was in. It would be amazing to watch this today !
My mother was a big winner on this show. She won all 10 games as well as the grand prize, a trip to Europe.

How can I find and view the episode(s) she was on? She is 82 years old and I would LOVE to surprise her with this!

Thanks for any help you can provide.
