Exclamation Colour footage of JG77 in Breslau

I saw a very intersting program on TV here in Aus last week. A German produced show "WW2 in colour", not much Luftwaffe aircraft at all, except for one gem.
There was about one and a half to 2 mins colour footage of Hannes Trautloft and JG77 in Breslau in 1939 before going in to Poland. That's what the commentary said anyway.
The footage showed the pilots being briefed on the field with large maps near the aircraft, close ups of the pilots listening and looking cheerful. I recognize a couple of faces there, can't name them yet though.
The aircraft are early Emil Bf109s by the look, red number codes. We see pilots running to them, them being crank started, pilots strapped in and then several taking off in quick succesion. Camo scheme is clearly RLM 70/71 on top.
Has anyone else seen this footage? I'd never seen it before and found it quite stunning.
Before anyone asks, I'd love to but don't have the facilities to upload this footage
