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.

"Now and then, though, someone does begin to grow differently. Instead of down, his feet grow up toward the sky. But we do our best to discourage awkward things like that."
"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).
