Notes: The first thing on today`s filming agenda was the making of a video for the album`s title song "Imagine".
The classic footage shows John performing the song at his white grand piano with Yoko opening up the shutters of the windows before sitting down next to him at the piano.
In the 1972 TV special they began the sequence with the addition of the footage of them walking up the driveway in the "fog" before disappearing at the front door and reappearing inside with John at the piano.
