All the information I have gathered about the telerecording is that it was made on film. The BBC were developing their own video system, and it was first demonstrated on the 'Panorama' programme on 14 April, 1958. There were some problems with the system and it never went in to regular service. The BBC eventually abandoned it and took delivery of its first US Ampex machines at the end of 1958. So, what happened to the film? My guess is that unfortunately it was thrown out in a clear out of old recordings.
