Granada Television / Movies Unlimited

John Sheppard

Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger, John Densmore

Documentary movie made for television and released on video in 1992. The film contains interviews, performance footage from a concert at London's 'Roundhouse' and music over newsreel footage of demonstration scenes. Performances include such classics as "Light my Fire," "The Unknown Soldier," "Spanish Caravan," and "When the Music's Over."

The Stones Rock And Roll Circus

Michael Lindsay-Hogg

This was filmed for television at the Wembley International Studios on 11th December 1968 but never released in its entirety at the time ( although some footage showed up in other productions ) as Mick Jagger was reputedly unhappy with the quality. The circus acts were supplied by Sir Robert Fossett's circus, including a fire-eater and trapeze artists. Stars featured were Marianne Faithfull, Jethro Tull, The Who (performing a fab acapella piece), Taj Mahal, Ian Anderson, and a 'supergroup' called 'Dirty Mac' consisting of John Lennon, Keith Richard, Eric Clapton and the Hendrix drummer Mitch Mitchell, with a special number featuring Yoko Ono.

There was also, originally, a curious interlude involving Mick Jagger and Keith Richard in a knife-throwing act. It was subjected to post-production in the UK and USA between 1989 and 1995 and released as a 65 minute video in 1996 by ABKCO Films. For those of you who missed it, hard luck - it was on UK television on December 26th 2004 - just after midnight!
