these were made and released in the early 80's from the tv series Planet of the Apes.  i just recently came across these on a fansite about Roddy McDowell and that he donned the ape makeup to do beginning and ending for each of these made for tv movies.  i have never seen the added McDowell scenes or these tv movies.  Were they released on dvd across the pond?  i am just trying to figure out where to better focus my search.

no, I'm not finding official releases of them, searching our DVD Profiler Database for all discs.

i did find the intro and exits that was used for these tv movies.  I will take this from the description at the youtube video i found that my search is over as i didn't want a taped from tv copy of these movies which is apparently what might be found.

The ABC openings and closings of these telefilms were neither broadcast by other stations nor included on any home media release.

i wasnt looking for the series itself.  i own that but there were 5 made for tv movies that used episodes from the series but had special intro and exit scenes added to them but upon further research they were never released and only the abc stations that aired the tv movies had the intro and exit scenes.  i found a youtube video that has those scenes only so my hunt is over.
