I am not familiar with Roscoe... but I think you would start with some Roscoe utility to get data out of it.

There were references to something when googling for "utility to export roscoe dataset"

Haven't heard of Roscoe for about 24yrs! I recall we had it as a TSO alternative for Developers as it was much more CPU efficient. Can't remember now, but I think it was based on either DA or VSAM datasets? Possibly used Panvalet libraries?

It should be DA

Certainly not based on Panvalet, it was DA.
Roscoe was originally from Applied Data Research (ADR) who also had Librarian, which was a competitor to Panvalet.
Ah, Roscoe, that bring back fond memories, it was the first product I was responsible for, back in the 70s.

Did an exercise to move from Roscoe to PDS about 16 years ago - but the jobs I still have were to copy single members using PGM=ROSCOPY , so I probably had to do members individually.

I no longer have documentation on ROSCOPY utility.

I would pursue with Broadcom, but they may not like you getting out of using Roscoe.

As the absolute last resort, I would use the ADRDSSU utility and use the PRINT statement to get a hex dump of the members (I assume it is not somehow encrypted). Then you can re-constitute the members. (yeah, this is very error prone)
