Cale live appearances on tv are floating around on DVD. On the upside: pro-shot quality. On the downside: many generations of VHS in the lineage. Look for rebroadcasts if you want the Rockpalast stuff. And yes, they turn up at eBay every now and then at the usual hefty prices. You know what to do.
The 1983 show is missing Risé, Sam And Rimsky-Korsakov, which was sung by his then wife Risé.
The first edition of the Cale organized Life Along the Borderline: a Tribute to Nico in London (October 11, 2008) was also filmed.

Cale appeared on numerous tv talk shows and music programs like Later Wtih Jools Holland, The Tonight Show and The Old Grey Whistle Test, discussing music or playing live (or both).
Recordings of these performances are not widely circulated, except these:

Smuggling in a camera and taping the (whole) thing. So far, only five recordings have been circulated among traders.
These recordings for the hardcore Caleists only. Considering the strict "no cameras" policy it is a small miracle that they exist.
