Status Partially Found

The Adventures of Noddy was the first TV series to feature Enid Blyton's famous character Noddy. It was a string-puppet show that ran on ITV from 1955-1956[1] and BBC from 1955 to 1963.[2]

Although episodes of other Noddy shows have been found, very little footage of the 1955 series resurfaced.

Part of an episode was shown in a VHS documentary special hosted by Phillip Schofield: Best Children's TV Of The Decade: '60s and '70s.

In addition, footage was also shown in a 1957 TV advert for "Kellogg's Sugar Ricicles".

Do you know who made the documentary? Maybe you should ask the company where they got the footage of the episode, because the source might be where the series is stored.

I've actually been asked by a lot of people to email the company who made the documentary. I really wanted to but In the mean time I was just waiting for ITV or BBC to email me back because I contacted program copy sales about a month ago and they haven't replied back and I don't think that they are going to anytime soon. But yes I will try to find the company who made the documentary soon.

Anyone thought of looking into film prints? There's some commercially released silent 8mm reels that pop up on ebay every so often - not sure if they're sourced from the TV series but it's possible - for example;
