These freeze frames were part of a Wochenschau (cinema news reel) from early 1971 concerning Deep Purple's riot blighted tour of Germany in November / December 1970. The 90 seconds of footage feature riot scenes with water cannon being deployed by the police, Ian Gillan's opinion of the situation, and a clip of 'Black Night' live in Hamburg, December 1970. The item is available on DVD (pictured left). DP(O) have located longer versions of the footage for hopeful use on a future Deep Purple DVD Archive release.
