Video summary

In July 1981 Jools Holland flew to Montserrat to interview (and perform with) the members of The Police while they were recording Ghost In The Machine.

(a banner in the opening shots promotes a convention that went from July 14-19, so Jools probably was on Montserrat before July 19)

It was first broadcast on BBC1 at 5:10PM on 1981-12-19 - billed as "The Police - Montserrat '81" (40 minutes long).

It was officially released as a 47 minute bonus movie on Every Breath You Take: The DVD on 2003-04-07.
