So, after I posted that baby video on Derail, I was thinking…we don't really have a thread for random unconnected Beatles videos, like interviews, home movies, fan stuff, etc. So I made one.

My first video: George in 76 watching a performance clip of This Boy . It made me tear up. Very beautiful.

 

If you've got a vid, post it here.

"What happens to them?" insisted Milo.

"Oddly enough, they often grow ten times the size of everyone else," said Alec thoughtfully, "and I’ve heard that they walk among the stars."

I just uploaded this to YouTube. It’s silent footage of The Beatles (and Pattie, Cynthia, Jane, Marianne, Maharishi) in Bangor, north Wales, in August 1967.

Years ago a former colleague at the BBC gave me a DVD-R containing this footage. Some of it has appeared in documentaries and news reports over the years, but some of it is, I believe, previously unseen. I completely forgot I had it until the new Twitter account BeatlesWales started posting Wales-related content (I live in Cardiff, the capital).

I Beatles in Ritiro (The Beatles in Retreat) was a half-hour 1968 Italian documentary made by their “Channel 7 News”. They’d arrived late to Rishikesh, but it worked in their favour as they got exclusive access. Filmed on 15 March, some of the footage is familiar, some less so.

An upgrade of the documentary appeared on YouTube a few days ago. Very good quality, though some of the Beatles’ bits are out of synch. The narration is, obviously, in Italian (though if you turn on the captions there is a, not terribly accurate, English translation), but it’s worth it for the footage.

This is quite a nice interview with Paul

does anyone know anything about the TV special they mention at the end? Called something like “BBC Paul McCartney Intimate Details”

Broadcast on 29 August 1986 on BBC1 under the name McCartney. Running to an hour, it consisted of an interview with Paul conducted by (mainly radio) broadcaster Richard Skinner, filmed at Abbey Road in Studio 2 on 18 July. The interview was intercut with various short music clips, many of which were quite rare at the time.

In November 1987 it was released on video as The Paul McCartney Special.

An interesting sidenote is that it’s been suggested Skinner was the person who broke the news of John’s murder to Paul in an early morning phone call while working for BBC Radio One’s Newsbeat.

(Another pointer for you, @meaigs, is that there are interview threads for each Beatle near the top of the first page in their individual sections, as well as interview threads for 2 or more Beatles and for people who knew them near the top of the first page in the Yesterday … and Today section. Hope these pointers are helpful rather than being seen as annoying.)
