TV report from German/Austria - EveryBody is a Hard Year

This short colour offering was shot around the 15th December 1968, it appears to have been filmed at 'Kenwood'* which had just been put up for sale. Scenes include Yoko talking about her art whilst John is sat playing acoustic guitar, and out in the garden John & Yoko are seen singing "Everybody had a hard year" with the cameraman walking towards them with John then pointing directly into the lens; "Surprise, Surprise"

Film of the exterior of the house and the gate was included in Reporting 66; a programme produced by ITN, in 1966. Parts of a home movie showing Lennon at Kenwood, in 1967, were featured in the film Imagine: John Lennon. This had Lennon in the company of Starr, his son Julian Lennon and the gardener at Kenwood. It also shows Lennon standing in the sunroom. Lennon and Yoko Ono were filmed singing the "Everybody Had A Hard Year" section of the Beatles' song "I've Got A Feeling", at the side of the house, and made two art films in the grounds in 1968: Number 5 a.k.a. Smile, and Two Virgins. Lennon was interviewed several times on audio tape at Kenwood, by people like Ray Coleman, and Kenny Everett. Several photo sessions also took place at Kenwood, the most famous of which provided the cover photo for the Beatles' 1965 album Rubber Soul.

Both pieces belong to the same movie and I think it won't be difficult to find the full film...
