These are  Scenic Footage Videos, where the arrangements of Paul Mauriat are played against some scenery around France. There are claps between the videos so probably the source is from a live performance.
Track 14 - Nagekidori - Mauriat arrives in his car to a river and he drops and watches a little boy fishing and a little girl watching in the same boat, then Mauriat walks in the woods and a boy and a girl walking in the road, caressing a bird, playing. Mauriat enters the mansion and the boy and the girl are watching the swans.
