Notes: After arriving at the lakes shore, John & Yoko along with Julian and their assistant commandeered a row boat and set off across the lake to the island to see how the cottage construction was coming along.
They soon returned to the mainland (minus Julian who not on the island but was back on the mainland) so obviously a couple of rowboat journeys must have taken place.
Almost 3 minutes of this footage turned up as a bonus feature on the DVD of "Imagine: John Lennon" in 2005 after only 12 seconds had been used in the 1988 film and subsequently one minute was used in the 2018 doco "Above Us Only Sky".
