A film of a live concert by famed singer/songwriter Donovan that took place in January at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles as part of an event promoting Consciousness-Based(SM) education is now being featured on PBS stations nationwide.

During the concert Donovan talks about the Transcendental Meditation technique and the time he spent with Maharishi in India in 1968 on a course to train teachers of the Transcendental Meditation technique. At the end Donovan is joined on stage by Mike Love of the Beach Boys, who also attended that teacher training course.

The PBS show premiered at the end of last month on Long Island's PBS station WLIW21. It will air nationwide in June, during fundraising week—which is typically when viewership is at its peak.

The film begins with a montage of Donovan in his early days and includes a medley of his popular songs, as well as photos and clips of him with many famous rock stars, many of whom he influenced, including the Beatles and the Beach Boys.

This is followed by the live performance of his hits such as 'Sunshine Superman,' 'Mellow Yellow,' 'Season of the Witch,' 'Hurdy Gurdy Man,' 'Jennifer Juniper,' and 'Catch the Wind.'

During the broadcast, a notice appears on screen that it's being 'presented in part by a grant from the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace—bringing the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation program to students—on the web at'
