Concert for Bangladesh Revisited with George Harrison and Friends

Genre: Documentary
47 min

Mr Harrison, with all of the enormous problems in the world,

how did you happen to choose this one to do something about?

Because I was asked by a friend if I would help, that's all.


"Awaiting On You All" by George Harrison

# You don't need no love in

# You don't need no bed pan

# You don't need a horoscope or a microscope

# To see the mess that you're in

# If you open up your heart You'll know what I mean

# We've been polluted so long

# Here's a way for you to get clean

# By chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free

# The Lord is awaiting on you all to awake and see

# Chanting the names of the Lord and you'll be free

# The Lord is awaiting on you all to awake and see... #

Few musical events in recent years have attracted as much attention as George Harrison's concert

for the relief of the refugee children of the holocaust in East Pakistan.

Scheduled for August 1st here at the Garden,

and although tickets don't go on sale until Thursday,

the lines have already started to form.

- I asked some kids why they're here so early.

- To get a good seat.

I'm really into this East Pakistan thing.


Ironically, probably the last time the fans were turned on like this was when

the Beatles themselves played together as a group at Shea Stadium.

From Madison Square Garden, this is Geraldo Rivera reporting for Channel 7 Eyewitness News.

Really, it was Ravi Shankar's idea.

He wanted to do something like this and he was...

talking to me and telling me about his concern for the thing

and asked me if I had any suggestions.

Then, after half an hour, he talked me into being on the show.

# Bangladesh

# Bangladesh

# Such a great disaster

# I don't understand

# But it sure looks like a mess

# I've never known such distress

# Please don't turn away

# I want to hear you say

# Relieve the people of Bangladesh... #

Personally, I prefer to be a part of a band.

But, um...

But for this, you know, it was just something

we had to do in order to get the money. We had to do it quick.

War was going on between

Pakistan and Eastern Pakistan, as it was then known,

which was part of the original whole of Bengal -

that's where I belong to.

And all my distant relatives, along with many other refugees,

they were coming by thousands to Calcutta.

And all the women and children suffering,

and all that made me feel very concerned.

And George immediately said that he would help.

'I had the benefit of fame with The Beatles.

'John, you know, he was... he made me more aware

'of that aspect of using The Beatles' power,

'using recordings and videos and stuff to make more money.'

George, in the concert on August 1st, you will be the number one star.

- How do you feel about that?

- Er...nervous. - LAUGHTER


# Something in the way she moves

# Attracts me like no other lover

# Something in the way she woos me

# I don't want to leave her now

# You know I believe her now

# Somewhere in the way she smiles

# Tells me I need no other lover

# Something in her style that shows me

# Don't want to leave her now

# You know I believe her now

# Asking me will my love grow

# I don't know

# I don't know

# You stick around now it may show

# I don't know

# I don't know... #

'I think the most memorable thing, really,

'was the fact that it came off and that it worked,

'because there was very little time preceding the concert to organise it.

'The concert happened to be on August the 1st,

'because that was the only day Madison Square Garden was available.

'So it was pure coincidence. And all the people that were assembled,
