Recording session for the TV show ‘Will The Real Mr. Sellers…’ at the Les Ambassadeurs. This show was broadcast on 8th December (BBC1) and featured interviews with John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

John bought his 18th-century Georgian mansion, Tittenhurst Park, for a hundred and fifty grand. It had seventy-two acres of parkland, a farm, two cottages, an outhouse and a lodge at the front gate. The house itself had seven bedrooms, three reception rooms and three bathrooms (not including the staff quarters!). The place was so fucking big he had to let a few hippies help out: “The Krishna people are helping me farm some of the land,” he said. “We have between 15 and 30 of them here, and they’re happy to farm and get on with their lives. Nothing binding, but we’re hoping to grow some non-chemical food… maybe we can sell it to Harrods.”
