The BBC has been doing a series looking at history via the story of the residents of a single house. For the project they chose 62 Falkner Street, Liverpool. Tonight's episode reaches the '60s, and already mentioned in the trail is that John was resident on the street during that time. Brian owned a flat at 36 Falkner Street, where John and Cynthia spent their early months of marriage.

The episode shows at 9pm on BBC2, available on the BBC iPlayer afterwards.

That was where John wrote 'Do You Want To Know A Secret '.

Episode 2

And for anyone interested in new music that is inspired by the Beatles

On 14 October radio station BBC 6 Music have a couple of White Album  related programmes.

Mary Anne Hobbs' show (7-10am UK time): "Producer Chris Thomas recalls his work on the Beatles' White Album ."

Even more exciting though is...

6 Music Celebrates the White Album (2-6pm UK time): "How to follow Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band? The Beatles found the answer in a sprawling double album of variable quality with no hint of a 'concept', and packaged so plainly as to distance it from their psychedelic masterpiece. The Beatles was its title but everyone called it the 'White Album ', and it contained such classics as Blackbird Dear Prudence  and While My Guitar Gently Weeps  alongside more forgettable fare like Don't Pass Me By . As its 50th anniversary approaches (it was released in November 1968), Martin Freeman looks back with Giles Martin (son of the album's lead producer George Martin), Bill Nighy, David Quantick and Nile Rodgers."

The second looks particularly interesting as, with Giles' involvement, there has to be a reasonable chance it'll include some of the outtakes and demos included on the upcoming deluxe and super deluxe, along with Giles' remix.

EDIT: Just found the BBC announcement of the show - which has it broadcasting 3-6pm, but is wrong as it states it's a four hour programme:

In celebration of National Album Day, award-winning actor and huge fan of The Beatles Martin Freeman presents this four-hour special on The Beatles’ revolutionary 1968 release The White Album . With enlightening, entertaining and surprising insights into the record, this celebration includes live performances and in-depth appreciation by fans, experts and critics.
With special guests to introduce and explain a sample of never-before-heard material from the album’s original fabled Esher sessions at George Harrison ’s house, this will also be a live Listening Party for the whole original double album, with all the tracks played, enjoyed and discussed over an afternoon with the finest commentators and contributors.

With his knowledge and expertise, Martin will be digging deep into key tracks, breaking down their groundbreaking musical structure, composition and lyrics. He will also be hearing master tapes and going behind the scenes at Abbey Road , meeting both those who worked on the original album and on the new mixes for the release later this year. He will explore the turbulent times of 1968 - a period, reflected on the album, when peace and love started to evolve into something different.

Martin will investigate the influence of the album in the many covers and samples, from Dangermouse to Wu-Tang Clan. Guests and contributors will include producer Giles Martin - son of Beatles’ producer Sir George Martin, actor Bill Nighy, Gail Renard (a Canadian broadcaster who got to know John and Yoko at the Montreal bed-in), master musican and producer Nile Rodgers, journalist John Harris and actor John Simm. It will feature BBC archive clips of John, Paul, George and Ringo, Sir George Martin, Chris Thomas and others recorded at the time.

This programme is part of BBC Music’s support for the first ever National Album Day, which takes place on Saturday 13 October with programming on Radio 1, 1Xtra, Radio 2, Radio 3, Radio 4, 6 Music, BBC One and BBC Four across the week or on the day itself.

Presenter: Martin Freeman

Producer: Mark Simpson for the BBC

The new Channel 4 documentary about the Imagine  album I flagged recently in the news thread, John and Yoko: above Us Only Sky, will get its first airing on Saturday (24 November) between 8:30-10:20pm on Channel 4. It will be repeated at just after midnight on 4seven (Sunday 25th - 12:05-2:00am).

Hopefully that means it should be getting shown in other countries soon, so keep checking your TV listings...

[I haven't typoed on the title, by the way - all four appearances of the title in next week's Radio Times do not give the "above" a capital A, so I'm assuming that's correct.]

Attention US Forumpudlians, and any others who can get Saturday Night Live... Tonight's episode, 15 December, has Miley Cyrus as musical guest performing her just released cover of Happy Xmas (War Is Over) with Sean, who also appears on the record. Produced by Mark Ronson.

I don't hate it.
