From the back cover:
"Some of these films have been unseen for 23 years.
Others are more widely known. This is the first collection of all the films made by Antony Balch in collaboration with William Burroughs, Brion Gysin and Ian Sommerville. It includes footage from the Beat Hotel (Paris), from Tangier and New York. The last section is one hour from a five-hour film called 'Ghosts at No. 9' which uses cut-ups of film and superimpositions. All have sound. Made available from the unique archives of Psychick Television."
