Simple question: where does that sample come from?

When I bought this album (back when it was new in the late 90s) I googled all the 'samples' hoping to find the groovy 60s underground films (and BBC interviews) that they were all lifted from. I couldn't find any. So, like Tivep, I was forced to conclude that the Propellerheads had invented them all. Awesome, yet somewhat disappointing. I really wanted to hear those quotes in their original context.
About a decade later, the web realized that "Velvet Pants" samples a really obscure late-60s documentary called 'The Groupies'. So there's a good chance that 'Bigger' is also a sample. (I mean - just listen to it - no-one's talked like that since the 60s - you surely couldn't make that stuff up? Ditto "A very large number of microphones".)
And yet, I can't find any references. When it comes to the pre-web era - even as recently as the 60s, 70s and 80s - there's clearly loads of cultural history that has never been digitized. Don't believe Wikipedia!
So I reckon they are samples - and I'll buy a drink or three to anyone who comes up with the originals.
