a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Unfortunately I was only able to catch what I think was the second hour or so of it while it was actually on (although I was hopefully able to tape all of it so I can watch the rest later), but what I did catch was definitely an interesting and very heart-rending watch.

This also means that it is still on BBC iPlayer, it looks like there are 16 days left if anyone wants to catch it!

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

of days

BBC Radio 4‘s Archive on 4 at 8pm GMT on Saturday 21 November is titled All Things Must Pass at 50:

In November 1970 a triple album was released by the Beatle previously known as ‘the Quiet One’. George Harrison ‘s All Things Must Pass was unique, not because it was number one around the world, but because of its fascination with Eastern religion.

Growing up in the 1970s, musician and composer Nitin Sawhney was aware of George Harrison and his interest in Indian classical music, particularly his close connection with Ravi Shankar. He knew Harrison’s hit singles, but his most famous album, All Things Must Pass , remained unexplored. Was this LP, written in the latter years of the 1960s already out of date in 1970, or was it in fact ahead of its time, with its heart-felt lyrics and religious themes? This month sees the 50th anniversary of the its release and so is a good time to reappraise George Harrison ‘s most successful album.

Interviewees include Olivia Harrison, Michael Palin, Jools Holland, biographers Graeme Thomson and Joshua M. Greene, keyboard player Bobby Whitlock, drummer Alan White, and guitarist Dave Mason.

To be broadcast several times this weekend on the BBC News Channel and (for non-UK Forumpudlians that get it) BBC World News, the reflections of Tom Brook, the first BBC reporter to cover John’s murder from the Dakota, on his life, death, and lasting impact.

John Lennon Remembered: A Reporter’s Journal:

Tom Brook marks the 40th anniversary of former Beatle John Lennon ‘s murder in New York on December 8th 1980. His untimely death was a slaying that shocked millions of fans around the world. In ‘Lennon Remembered: A Reporter’s Journal’ the BBC’s Tom Brook, the first British journalist to report live from the site of the New York shooting, takes stock of Lennon’s life and the legacy of his music. Brook recounts what happened on the night Lennon died when he returned to his home, the Dakota apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, with his wife Yoko Ono and he hears from some of Lennon’s closest confidantes as well as younger Lennon fans in America today. Drawing on a wealth of archive material, the programme includes Tom Brook’s interview with the former Beatle’s widow, Yoko Ono, one of the first she gave in which she discussed Lennon’s life and death. The programme assesses John Lennon ‘s powerful legacy forty years on and asks whether his messages of love and peace are still relevant now.

For those who watch on BBC World News, check local listings for broadcast times where you are.

Tom Brook’s report on the 30th anniversary…

A programme on the BBC iPlayer called What We Were Watching – the episode called Song and Dance Spectaculars. 

It compiles clips from the BBC archives of those musical extravaganza shows that aired in the 60s to the 80s. A section in the middle shows various different Beatles covers, but the whole programme is an interesting glimpse at this period in history!

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

BBC2 in the UK appear to be having a bit of a John Lennon night on Saturday (15 May) for some reason. Missing my birthday by a week, which would have been a good reason. Barstewards!

Anyway, at 8:30pm we have the half-hour TOTP2: John Lennon Special; followed at 9pm by a new BBC documentary, John Lennon : a Life in Ten Pictures, which looks at John’s life through ten images, from him as a boy with Julia to him signing an autograph for the arsehole on 8 December 1980; at 10pm there is a repeat of the Michael Epstein feature-length (80 minutes) documentary Lennon: the New York Years.

I know what I’m doing Saturday night.

I have seen the TOTP 2 Special and Lennon: The New York Years, but haven’t seen ‘A Life In Ten Pictures’ yet. I will watch it later.

Geoff Lloyd looks back at The Beatles Anthology, which saw the band sell more records in one year than any other year since the break up in 1970. It will be on the 27th this Sunday at 9pm in the UK.

BBC1 are giving the Richard Curtis film Yesterday , in which Himesh Patel plays the only person who can remember The Beatles, its network premiere on Sunday (4 July) at 8:15pm, followed by (after at interruption for the news) a repeat of the Idris Elba Meets Paul McCartney  interview from last December at 10:30pm.

Yesterday  gets a repeat on BBC4 on Friday (9 July) at 11:25pm, preceded by the 2019 documentary The Beatles: Made on Merseyside (which I think is a pretty good look at their early years and influences) at 10pm, and followed by the 2009 …Sings the Beatles (in which various BBC performances of Beatles songs by other artists are gathered together) at 1:15am Saturday morning.

Having listened to this I thought it was a good 30 minute documentary stretched into a dull one hour documentary. At one point it turned into a promo for the upcoming ‘Get Back ’ documentary. 
Still astounds me that the band who came along to be bigger than The Beatles were The Beatles.
