Remarks:This video captures about one year (from February 1980 to January 1981) of The Police on the road. They are filmed in Japan, Hong Kong, Australia, India, Egypt, Greece, South America, France and the USA. It features many live perfomances and also Stewart's own personal Super 8 footage. Be aware that not all the live footage was actually recorded in the countries that are listed in the subtitles!

A lot of the footage in this film (mainly the first part - up to the footage in Athens) was also issued in the documentary "The Police In The East", which was recorded and broadcasted by the BBC. Annie Nightingale and a film crew followed the band for this BBC documentary.
