Comments : There was a fantastic series of TV programmes examining Classic Albums in considerable detail.
This DVD presents the definitive authorised edition examining the John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band album.
This issue includes the original T.V. broadcast along with almost 37 extra minutes of bonus material prepared for the original show but was unused because of the restraints of the TV schedules. And some of this extra material is fantastic.

Executive Producer - Terry Shand, Geoff Kempin and Jamie Rugge-Price
Series Producers - Nick de Grunwald and Martin R. Smith
Director and Editor - Matthew Longfellow

This DVD examines John's 1970 first post-Beatle solo album with exclusive interviews with:
Yoko Ono, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voorman, Dr. Arthur Janov and Jan Wenner.
Through the use of stills, and rare audio archive and footage, and by re-visiting the original multi-track recordings and demos with Abbey Road engineers Phil McDonald and Richard Lush, the film tells the story of the creativity behind the conception and recording of the songs featured on John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band.
Truly a Classic Album.

The DVD is cheaply packaged, being presented in a standard plastic box with a single sheet insert containing little more than a list of songs featured and a few small photographs.
