‘24 Hours: The World of John and Yoko’, a documentary short that initially aired on December 15, 1969, on the BBC, is now available to stream for the first time since its original broadcast exclusively on The Coda Collection.
Directed by Paul Morrison, the cinema verite style film chronicles the creativity and activism of John Lennon and Yoko Ono during the period and was shot at Lennon’s Tittenhurst Park estate, Abbey Road Studios, and the Apple offices in London during the couple’s campaign to promote peace.
“The campaign hasn't been going as long as Coca-Cola's or Shell, and the identification symbols aren't as well known,” Lennon says in the film. “It's going to take us a few years for them to know when we say ‘peace’ what it means.”
In accompanying editorial on CodaCollection.Co, veteran journalist Alan Light describes ‘24 Hours’ as “ ...a portrait of two energized and inspired artist-activists, with a strong sense of purpose and a fearless attitude, even in the face of resistance and ridicule” and “a fascinating snapshot of a hugely transitional moment for John and Yoko.”
