Very few of the early films have soundtracks that include narration- because Warren would narrate the films himself, in person. It isn't a matter of moving the original film to a modern home format, it is that even if you had the original film, narration never existed aside from what came out of Warren's mouth the night of the show.
The earliest I am aware of is Many Moods of Skiing from 1961, which can be found online. I'm not sure why this one ended up with a soundtrack when others after this didn't seem to.
"Journey Through the Decades" was released a while back. It is a collection with Journey (2003), Endless Winter (1995), Steep & Deep (1986) and Ski A La Carte (1978). Out of print but you can probably still locate a copy.
Finally, go to WME's website and sign up for their mailing list. They will commonly give away downloads to classic movies in return for a 2-3 minute survey. Two birds with 1 stone- it gives you a chance to tell them to stop piecing together new movies with B-Roll from other film crews.
