There are many books, films, documentaries etc telling their story. The Anthology being one told by themselves. Would it not be a good idea to dramatise the story not in documentary format, but rather, dare I say it, more like a soap opera (for want of a better word). E.G. A weekly series ranging from the 40’s through to their end. A dramatisation to include every individual concerned in their story. There must be some look-alikes around who can act and could take part of as many characters as there are. If not, there may be some as close to the originals.  Isn’t it time, for such a series?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Why would you want to?

This video explains the many many pitfalls that previous Beatles biopics have fallen into, and it seems the more “dramatic” soap opera style films are the most cringe-worthy. I think we’re yet to have a truly realistic well produced, well scripted, well cast retelling of their story, but maybe that’s a good thing.

We’re lucky enough to have The Beatles own movies, the Anthology series, Living In The Material World , Eight Days A Week , the new Get Back film – as well as countless hours of archive footage just waiting to be remastered and compiled in different ways. And we still have two living Beatles! It’s best to hear it straight from the horse’s mouth.

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
