Seventeen different countries participated in the broadcast, the Soviet Union and several other Eastern bloc countries pulled out a few days before the broadcast to protest the west's involvement in the Six-Day War. See more »
This show was broadcast in 1967, and showed a very distinctive thing about every country around the world. England, of course, showed "their" Beatles performing the hymn "All You Need Is Love". Some say Lennon wrote this song especially for the show, and some others say it was already written. Not even the own Beatles can say for sure. You can see some of the Beatles' friends in the TV set, including Rolling Stone Mick Jagger. This is the version that was used for the Magical Mystery Tour album, and actually the only take that was ever made. Yo can hear McCartney making a mistake on his bass, close to the end of the song. A historic document.
