Beatles Audio Chronology?

Hi – new visitor here – enjoying the site so far.

I am wondering if there are any recommendations for Beatles "chronology" type recordings.  I am thinking of interviews interspersed with their songs of the time, telling their story album by album, etc.

For instance, I love Anthology 1, Disc 1, where it alternates between songs and quotes from the principals, giving a sense of context for where they were, what they were going through, how they were developing, etc.  Something like this tracing their entire history is what I am thinking of.

I remember many years ago hearing a made-for-radio broadcast that did what I am describing.  But I am not sure if anything like this has been formally released on CD or on the web? I did come across the following "podcast", but it seems incomplete and the episodes that are there were not really comprehensive: http://viprhealthcare.typepad……nicles_po/.

Certainly the Anthology DVD set is the definitive story, but I am curious about audio-only alternatives.

Any pointers from the community?
