Notes: In the late afternoon John & Yoko taped an appearance on the British talk show "Parkinson" and were interviewed by the host Michael Parkinson who at one point climbed inside a black bag at John & Yoko`s request.
The program was screened later that night on the BBC. From what we can tell the BBC no longer has a copy of this episode but John & Yoko`s own cameras did film the entire interview off the TV monitor screen as well as some behind the scenes footage too.
Recently the entire complete interview with time code, presumably taken from a BBC master tape, has turned up on a rare DVD in OK quality colour.
