Update: From Yoko Ono's office (and from Yoko Ono herself, in the Boing Boing comments on this post) , word that "BED PEACE will now be available until midnight Sunday 21st August." No commercial release planned, though some old VHS tapes are still available online through various sellers. "Yoko just wants to encourage people to be reminded of and to discuss PEACE, especially after the recent events in the UK," says a rep.
