Apart from the well-known TVB appearances list, according to HK audience who have viewed Bruce's appearances from 1970-1973, some of them also saw the followings:

1971:
circa Nov. 19th, Bruce appeared in a special program that celebrated "The Big Boss" for smashing HK Box office record. So far, no photo found on this show.

1972:
1) circa Feb. 14th, Bruce appeared in the Chinses Lunar New Year TV special pre-recorded on Jan. 16th at the Kai Tek Airport. Bruce was spotted with a beard and was being interviewed together with Lo Wei and Leonard Ho.

2) circa Sep, viewers saw in a TVB program of Bruce appearing with Sam Hui and Pauline Shangguan on the shooting location of "The Game of Death". Apparently, Sam and Pauline were visiting Bruce while resting in between takes. They were filming another movie just next to the site of GOD in GV. A photo of them together can been found on the website.

3) circa Dec., Bruce was seen with Bolo Yeung who was in the Winston Cigaratte tv commercial ads. As it was the sponsor for promoting Bruce's new movie - "The Way of The Dragon" in the tv, Bruce appeared in a glimpse on the tv with Bolo but was not in the ads as he was against smoking. There was a photo of this ads that once appeared on the website.

1973:
1) early 73, some viewers saw shooting titbits of "Enter The Dragon" (on TVB news)with Bruce and Shek Kien being interviewed on the ETD shooting location. Is it the one that has confusion with the BBC interview all this while?

2) early 73, while filming ETD, Bruce was invited to appear in a TVB talk show with host Ivan Ho Bee. There were 2 photos that depict them on this show. Bruce was seen in a light formal shirt with sleeves being rolled up and a dark pant while Ivan was in his formal suit and tie.

3) circa Apr 73, Bruce appeared in a TVB program - "Montage" with Raymond Chow. There was a photo of them sitting together in a chair. Both shared their views on movie making and HK's future movie's direction.

In correction, Bruce's last appearance should be July 5th (Thur) not 10th as the record showed on most of the HK newspapers because "the Lo Wei's incident" was a big news in HK then.

Below are 2 sites of Bruce's TV appearances for reference:

What is "GV"?
So you are saying Bruce Lee's last television appearance was July 5, 1973 and not July 10, 1973?

Typo error, should be "GH" - Golden Harvest not "GV".

Yes, according to the HK press archives, the "Lo Wei's incident" took place on Jul 5th (Thur).

Here are the links to the 2 press articles:

1) TV Daily dated Jul 6th, 1973 (Fri), reported that TVB had been the first media to report the incident "yesterday" (i.e. Jul 5th, 1973)

2) HK Pictorial News dated 10th Jul,1973 (Tues), reported that TVB invited Bruce Lee to EYT show on 5th Jul to talk about the making of ETD, then the "Lo Wei's incident" that took place "last Thursday"(i.e. 5th Jul). Bruce "knocked" Ivan Ho down using his shoulder while explaining that he need not use any weapon on an old man but a mild force from his body will do. This act had caused critism from the TV viewers and the press media were quick to ask TVB producer, Robert Chua to explain about Bruce's "violent act" on the show. Robert replied he did not care about the accusation of others and had no comment on Bruce's words and acts on TV, however, he welcome Lo Wei to come on EYT show to have his take on the incident.

Hi Leon, these forgotten & missing TV appearances should exist. If the Bruce's TVB clips of Apr 9th-10th 1970, Operation Relief 1972 and Bruce TV News Special 1973 existed and have been shown on Youtube, then, there is no reason why Bruce's '72 appearances at Kai Tek airport, GOD & ETD shooting location interviews, other TVB interviews and even the TV commercial for promoting WOD etc. etc. would all disappear. They are treasure and fortune!

Someone is holding unto all these footage. Money, copyright, market, political issues etc. may be the reasons for the footage for not being able to see the daylight at the moment.
It's a shame...

A reminder, there's no statute of limitations for murder. That footage will probably never see the light of day.
