Here is fascinating footage of the stars and the royal party from the Royal Premiere of Born Free in 1966. John Barry and his then wife, Jane Birkin, can be spotted smiling at the camera towards the end of the videoclip.
This will puzzle anybody who has read Michele Monro's Matt Monro biography since it is stated therein that of the Born Free song crew, only Matt turned up and had to alert Don & John that the song was omitted from that print!!
