The purposes of the mixes were to demonstrate to Derek Burrell-Davis, who was directing the BBC's segment of the Our World satellite broadcast, that a song would be ready in time.

Two rough mixes were made, and an acetate of the second was given to Burrell-Davis. It is likely that the other was used as a reference for the scoring of the orchestra, who began work on 23 June 1967.
