Additional comments PAL version of The secret's policeman's third ball Video CD. The Secret Policeman's Balls is the collective name informally used to describe the long-running series of benefit shows staged in England to raise funds for the human rights organisation Amnesty International. The shows started out in the mid-1970s primarily as comedy galas featuring popular British comedic performers and later expanded to include leading musical performers. Mark Knopfler appeared in this 1987 edition playing I'll see you in my dreams and Imagine with Chet Atkins.
