Notes: The first filming for today included more aerial footage as John and Yoko waited for their "limousine" to arrive (in fact it was a hearse!) to take them down to the lake.
From there they rowed across to the island (with a bit of trouble getting started which is featured only in "Gimme Some Truth") and walked up to the small cottage.
All of this was filmed and was initially shown in the 1972 TV special "Imagine" using the song "Jealous Guy" to accompany the footage.
