Notes: An organisation called "Portable Channel" videotaped John & Yoko`s entire 50 minute press conference at the Everson Museum on October 8, 1971
along with footage of John & Yoko,Ringo and others walking around the exhibition and interviews with John & Yoko.
The black and white video-taped footage was possibly initially shown on the local PBS TV station WXXI, in Rochester, New York with whom "Portable Channel" were affiliated with.
Soon after the Syracuse PBS station WCNY-TV showed some of this footage in their TV series "Carousel".
It is unknown how much was broadcast. The 50 minute, black and white, raw video tape of the entire press conference has recently emerged
but part 2 of this video that includes the footage of Ringo as well as interviews with John & Yoko is still held in their archives.
