Footage of the star-studded live recording of John Lennon's classic peace anthem 'Give Peace A Chance' is to be made available on DVD for the first time.
The track was recorded on June 1, 1969 in suite 1742 of the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, on the last day of Lennon and wife Yoko Ono's seven-day 'bed-in' protest against violence.
The DVD, out on August 27, contains exclusive rare film from the archive of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, with outtakes from John and Yoko's own movie of the event.
The package also features new interviews with many of the people that were with John and Yoko on the day, along with a private new interview with Yoko herself.
'Give Peace a Song' also features over 35 minutes of bonus material including television interviews, a John and Yoko press conference and Petula Clark's visit to the bed-in
