I presume it’s UK only but those who can access the channel;

Music channel Now 70s is showing ‘Paul McCartney 1970 – 1979’ whilst Now 80’s has ‘Paul McCartney 1970 – 1989’. Both are repeated often so little point listing them all. Sadly Paul’s 90’s videos aren’t a focus for Now 90’s. 

Mealwhile ‘Paul McCartney at the BBC’ is back on the BBC’s iPlayer (for another 26 days), after a repeat broadcast last weekend, and you can also still watch Paul’s interview with Idris Elba (available for 5 months).

Just a note that Paul’s Glastonbury is likely to run longer than the advertised 10:30pm to 12:30am as I just saw a reporter on BBC News saying his set is a long one for Glastonbury, 2 hours 15 minutes.

I was looking for Now the other day on my granddad’s telly. Sky has taken a ton of channels off the Irish waves including Now and Forces TV (a girl just wants to watch classic Doctor Who – is that too much to ask?!?)

Don’t know if it’s been highlighted before but there is a show on BBC Radio Merseyside called ‘The Late Late Beatles Show‘ which plays a mixture of Beatles, solo and covers one hour a week; episodes are kept on the BBC iPlayer for 28 days.

Played the beginning of an episode earlier which was dedicated to Paul for his 80th birthday and ‘London Town ‘ (the song) was played so there is some obscure material.

The Bootleg Beatles performance at Transmit (a Scottish festival held in Glasgow) is available on the BBC iPlayer for another 11 days – watch some people pretend they are the Beatles in front of a large bunch of Glaswegians.

Jumping thru the show made me want to watch the Rooftop concert.

First up on this episode of ‘Celebrity Mastermind’ is The Beatles as the chosen subject, the questions however are ridiculously long. The entire track listing would be read out if asking which Beatles album was issued in 1968.

AHDN ‘ is currently available on the BBC iPlayer and will be for 19 days. Also available at the same location, for 26 days, is ‘A Life in Ten Pictures: John Lennon’.

 

What is the situation with the Beatles movie rights anyway? Does Apple own the rights to all bar ‘AHDN ‘ since that’s the one which is on TV the most and gets most reissues? I find it strange that ‘AHDN ‘ is on the BBC every year yet the others are next to never on TV unless it’s to promote a new release on whatever format.

Via RN who hasn’t gotten out of the tech doldrums yet…

Daily Beatle article https://webgrafikk.com/blog/ne…..dio-shows/

Celebrate the 60th Anniversary of From Me To You with BBC radio!

…including a recovered The Ken Dodd Show episode with the Beatles (03/11/1963). “BBC Radio has released a program that they have recovered after sixty years. The program was first broadcast on the BBC Light Program in November 1963. The program was recorded on John Lennon ’s 23rd birthday, 9 October 1963.” “This is just one of many radio programs that Radio BBC 4 Extra has broadcast and will broadcast to celebrate 60 years since “From Me To You ”,…”

Wow, 17 shows in all. The links to the ones that have already been broadcast are on the link above. The times for the upcoming shows are listed. If you can’t listen at the times they are on, you can find them on BBC Sounds after they have been broadcast on the radio (for up to 30 days).

Cheers for that AG.

There was just too much in that to type out, and since I’m yet to master doing links, or any copy and paste function on my phone, the help with sharing this is appreciated.

As you said, Wow. The BBC have really pushed out the boat to mark the 60th anniversary of the release of their first official #1.

It’s good that all will be available on BBC Sounds until around the end of June, for those who can access, as there’s a lot to listen to.

And good that we now have The Ken Dodd Show back, and know for certain we have that She Loves You performance.

Following the announcement of Now And Then , the BBC will show a range of programmes on TV, radio and online. Including an extended version of The One Show to be broadcast on Wednesday 1st. From 7pm to 7:45pm, Lauren Laverne will be introducing and commenting on the exclusive TV broadcast of the mini-documentary, ‘Now And Then – The Last Beatles Song’. 

 

A 6-part BBC Radio 2 series called ‘Eras: The Beatles’, presented by Martin Freeman, will be broadcast to celebrate the new release. The series will look at how The Beatles shaped music and reveal their history “as never before with extensive archive and in the band’s own words”. The first episode will introduce each of the Fab Four and follow the early days of their career, while the second episode will show how they ventured across the pond and conquered America. Episodes 3 and 4 will see how their lives began to become impacted by fame, and episode 5 will see how The Beatles navigated life after the break-up and their respective solo careers. The 6th and final episode will feature a new and exclusive interview with Paul and Ringo about Now And Then . The first 5 episodes are now available to listen to on BBC Sounds.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programm…..s/p0g7xpwt

 

On Saturday 4th, ‘The Beatles & The BBC’ will be shown on BBC Two and iPlayer. It features the Fab Four’s performances and footage from ‘Doctor Who’, ‘A Degree Of Frost’ and ‘Our World’. 

 

Renowned songwriter, Guy Chambers takes a look at the way the band wrote their songs on a Radio 2 show called ‘The Beatles – As Songwriters’. It is available to listen to on BBC Sounds.

The BBC are also showing ‘Sgt Pepper ‘s Musical Revolution ‘ and ‘Arena: The Brian Epstein Story’ on Saturday 4th November, starting at 11:10pm.

Also scheduled on the same night on the same channel (at 9:35pm) is ‘Sounds Of Liverpool At The BBC’ which no doubt will have Beatle connections. 

No doubt all of these will be available on the BBC’s iPlayer shortly afterwards.

There was a Beatles round on an episode of the UK version of Jeopardy!

Here are the 5 questions (answers in the correct Jeopardy! format please!)

1. Paul McCartney used the working title ‘Scrambled Eggs’ for this ballad, now one of the most covered songs in history

2. Covering the production of the band’s album ‘Let It Be ‘, the 2021 documentary series ‘Get Back ‘ was made by this director 

3. Held on the roof of their company headquarters in London, The Beatles’ final live performance took place in this year

4.  Ringo sung lead vocals on this hit, which also features various sound effects including clinking glasses and a brass band

5. In the early 1960s, the band had several residencies in this German port city where there’s now a square in the city centre named after them
