How High The Moon instrumental version by Benny Goodman (forties)

I'm desperately seeking a certain version from "How High The Moon" played in a 27 minute documentary on Rosamunde Pilcher which is part of the bonus material from "Coming Home" (the song is played after 11 minutes). I'm 99% sure it's by Benny Goodman from the forties, HOWEVER when I tried to find that same instrumental version by Goodman online in iTunes and , I could only find his version with Helen Forrest singing which is different (although very nice as well).
The version from the documentary sounds more like Benny Goodman with Strings although that was recorded in Hollywood in the early fifties and does not contain "How High The Moon".
If some Benny Goodman expert could help me with this, I would be very glad. "How high the Moon" was released first in 1940 and I'm pretty sure this is a forties version. I could play the version on the phone, if necessary.
