Fans of John Lennon and Yoko Ono over in the US will be pleased to hear that the documentary 24 Hours: The World of John and Yoko is now available on Amazon Prime Video US.
The mini-documentary first aired on the BBC back in 1969 and this will be the first time that it has been made available online via The Coda Collection through Amazon Prime.
Perhaps one of the most remarkable things about the documentary is simply that it is now over half a century old, a fact that the official logline was quick to state: “Last seen more than 50 years ago, and having aired just once on TV, this intimate documentary – captured over a five-day period – shows a day in the life of John and Yoko while Lennon was still a member of The Beatles, controversies raged and activism became a central concern in the couple’s everyday reality.”
The pioneering rock documentary was directed by Paul Morison who delved into the creative methods of the iconic artists as they worked at various endeavours at London’s Abbey Road Studios.
The movie is fascinating insight not only into the creative process of two cultural legends, but a glimpse at a moment in history when the counterculture movement billowed into full force.
As of yet there is no word on when the documentary will be made available in other regions.
