Feinberg, quiltmaker Christine Kemp, psychologists Timothy Leary & Rosemary Leary, CFOX DJs Charles P. Rodney Chandler & Roger Scott, producer André Perry, journalist Ritchie York, DJ & Promoter Murray The K, filmmaker Jonas Mekas, publicist Derek Taylor & personal assistant Anthony Fawcett.
Featured songs are Plastic Ono Band’s GIVE PEACE A CHANCE & INSTANT KARMA, Yoko’s REMEMBER LOVE & WHO HAS SEEN THE WIND & John’s acoustic version of BECAUSE.

Looks like the film will be offered there in YouTube form for this weekend only.
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.
