The interview took place in Studio G at the corporation’s Lime Grove Studios between 12.30 and 1pm. How Late It Is was a weekly arts and sketch show presented by Michael Wale.
The interview was broadcast on the same evening from 10.55pm. It included a three-minute sequence from Lennon and Ono’s film Rape, in which a young Hungarian woman, Eva Majlata, was followed by a film crew.
The full interview appears to no longer exist, but an audio recording circulates on bootlegs.
