Looking for 80s Bauhaus inspired font's name - used for French TV programs around 1982

Dear Typophile community,

Many thanks for your help on this.

This font was used a lot in French TV programs in the 1980s - this is a kind of cross between Bauhaus 93 and ITC Busorama.

Here's an example in the opening titles of a famous Children's program (from 00:05)

I have also posted some screenshots

Looking forward to your answers!

I found one digital match (dates from 2010, however):

I'm sure it had another pre-digital name--anyone else have any info?
