Contract for selling footage?

Hi all
I am close to making a sale of several bits of footage but am concerned about the minefield of broadcast rights/copyrights contracts etc. Are there any basic contracts or rough set of rules out there that I could use to create something.
I understand that I should be agreeing a time period, say 2 years useage, and I need to state the region or country where it will be used but what else?
I am selling some very rare wildlife footage. Some to be used in a locally produced series (only in Cambodia) and some to be used internationally (as yet no details on where).
With regard to the Cambodian series, I am producing this so my contract will be for the sale of rights to a local tv station. An additional problem here is that I have been given permission to use some very rare footage that belongs to a large conservation group who are very paranoid about its use. I obviously don't want to get my arse sued by them if the TV co did something dodgy.
Any suggestions or help would be most appreciated.

cheers

I don't think you should sell this specific footage as from your own words that the original owners of these are kind'a paranoids... I wouldn't even think about it. Otherwise you can ask them first. But its smells trouble here....

cheers
