Love is all you need …

June 25, 1967 ~ BBC producer Aubry Singer’s dream of the first-ever world wide satellite broadcast featuring creative artists from around the globe comes to life. The 2.5 hour broadcast dubbed “Our World” is actually beamed to different parts of the world at different times. Artists include opera singers, Maria Callas and Pablo Picaso. Oh .. and The Beatles.

The Viet Nam War is at its epoch and The Beatles are asked to provide a “postive message” for their segment. The band invites many friends including Eric Clapton, Keith Moon, Graham Nash and The Rolling Stones. The event aptly ushers in “The Summer of Love.”
