“All You Need Is Love” is a song by the Beatles that was released as a non-album single in July 1967. It was written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. The Beatles performed the song on June 25, 1967 as Britain’s contribution to Our World, the first live global television link.

For the broadcast, the Beatles (except for Starr) were seated on stools, accompanied by a small studio orchestra. They were surrounded by friends and acquaintances seated on the floor, who sang along with the refrain during the fade-out. These guests included Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, Marianne Faithfull, Keith Richards, Keith Moon, Graham Nash, Mike McGear, Patti Boyd and Jane Asher.

The performance was not completely live: the Beatles, the orchestra, and guests were overdubbing onto a pre-recorded rhythm track mainly consisting of piano, harpsichord, drums and backing vocals.

The producers of Our World were initially unhappy about the use of backing tracks, but it was insisted upon by Martin, who said that “we can’t just go in front of 350 million people without some work”.

The program was watched by over 400 million in 25 countries, the program was broadcast via satellite and broadcast in black-and-white (color television had yet to commence broadcasting in Britain and most of the world). The Beatles’ footage was later colorized, based on photographs of the event, for the 1995 documentary The Beatles Anthology. The color version is also included in the Beatles’ 2015 video compilation.
