NB The first of four of Cash's USA CBS TV shows to be shown by the BBC. The edition with Bob Dylan wasn't shown as the BBC felt it inferior. Bill Cotton, head of BBC's Light Entertainment told Melody Maker "People will say that any Dylan is better than no Dylan at all, but I'm not hysterical about that as a premise for putting it on TV if it's bad." The Melody Maker encouraged Dylan's fans to have their say writing to Dylan/TV, Melody Maker, 161 Fleet Street, London, EC4.

The invasion of the Yippies including Mick Farren, Jerry Rubin etc. The edition was broadcast live on LWT, and was shown the following night on other ITV channels with a warning about the profanities beforehand. One member of the audience brings their own black and white video camera, with "Electronic Newspaper" written on the side. The footage shot is currently available on You Tube. Jerry Rubin, who according to Frost negotiated the largest appearance fee of any of his guests, brings along twenty friends, despite only being given six complimentary tickets. A second studio was used for the second half of the show which just happened to be set up with cameras and lighting, leading to accusations that the whole scenario was created by Frost seeking publicity for his show which was under threat of being cancelled by LWT's new administration, namely Rupert Murdoch. It would be in vain as the following month Murdoch would show Frost the door.
