He did it without any advance warning so it would have taken time to get TV cameras down there or in the air. The news channels may not have even saved it. For example, very little footage of Walter Cronkite doing the CBS evening News in the 1960s or lots of sporting events...the tape was often re used. Much footage from the 1973 World Series between the New York Mets and Oakland A's doesn't exist so Petit's walk could have suffered the same fate, if it even got filmed.
