The global live television broadcasts.

Almost 40 years ago, today, on June 25, 1967 400 million people on all continents had a chance to watch a first-ever global live television broadcast with Beatles premiered their “All You Need is Love”:

Interesting that “live” television broadcasts have their own power. The Roger Waters’ extraordinary broadcast “The Wall: Live in Berlin” on July 21 1990 comes to my mind with 300,000 people in attendance and 500 million people watch it live around the word.  I was one of them. I was shooting a Saturday wedding in some small village in damn Russian jungle and juts returned to my hotel. At that time the live broadcast just started. It was quite amazing….

Both broadcasts are amazing today as they were then, today probably they are amassing even more...

“Hold on hold on soldier
When you add it all up
The tears and marrowbone
There's an ounce of gold
And an ounce of pride in each ledger
And the Germans killed the Jews
And the Jews killed the Arabs
And Arabs killed the hostages
And that is the news
And is it any wonder
That the monkey's confused
He said Mama Mama
The President's a fool
Why do I have to keep reading
These technical manuals
And the joint chiefs of staff
And the brokers on Wall Street said
Don't make us laugh
You're a smart kid..."

From Roger Waters “Amused to Death”....
