UK TV alert: Help! on BBC2!

I can't remember the last time Help! was ever shown on TV.

Saturday 27 October
7:50pm - 9:20pm

Help!


Beatles film peppered with special effects, songs and several bursts of riotous nonsense. The story revolves around a religious sect which attempts to recover a sacrificial ring from Ringo. The songs include 'Help', 'Ticket to Ride', 'Another Girl' and 'You've Got to Hide Your Love Away'.

There's also a documentary about the making of Help! on Tuesday night on BBC2.

The IMAGINE PEACE TOWER is an artwork conceived by Yoko Ono in memory of
John Lennon.

It is dedicated to peace and bears the inscription IMAGINE PEACE in 24 languages.

Its construction and installation is a collaboration between Yoko Ono, the City of
Reykjavik, Reykjavik Art Museum and Reykjavik Energy.

The work is in the form of a wishing well from which a very strong and tall tower of
light emerges. The strength, intensity and brilliance of the light tower continually
changes as the particles in the air fluctuate with the prevailing weather and atmospheric
conditions unique to Iceland.

Every year it will light up between October 9th (Lennon's birthday) and December 8th
(the day of his death).

In addition the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER will be lit on New Year's Eve, during the first
week of spring and on some rare special occasions agreed between the City and Yoko
Ono.
