Video of Unicycle Jousting wanted for TV program

I'm forwarding this message, trying to help this guy find jousting footage.
Earlier this week he was looking for sumo/gladiators/demolition derby
footage, which I guess he was unable to find. I offered him Freestyle
footage, from Hayashi's Web site, but he said it wasn't the right type of
activity for this segment. They have already done a segment on MUni/Trials,
apparently, so he wasn't interested in that.

Those TV types. Always in such a hurry they skip over almost everything...

This sounds interesting.  Two questions:

1)What are the 'poles' and 'armour' made out of?

2)Will my horse need to ride two unicycles?

Ooh - I'd be interested if that footage does get used cos I did quite
well at Nottingham. One of the times that being a fat-knack who is
happy to bully kids on unicycles helps :-)

I guess your horse will *be* a unicycle.
