    Episode #26 - 'Some Other Guys – The Beatlesque Recordings'

    Episode #26 - 'Some Other Guys – The Beatlesque Recordings'

    There have been fakers and imitators, tributes and rip-offs, but no one sounds like The Beatles on record—including the ex-Beatles. Nevertheless, some efforts have come closer than others, the most successful being those that have managed to capture the group’s essence rather than just replicate its sound while matching the standard of song material. In this episode, we dive into the good, the bad and the ugly—including those recordings which, bearing zero resemblance to the Fab Four, were promoted by bootleggers during the 1970s to fill the vacuum created by all of those unfounded Beatles-reunion rumours.

    Episode #25 – ‘Help! - The Beatles’ Seminal Pop/Pot Movie’

    Episode #25 – ‘Help! - The Beatles’ Seminal Pop/Pot Movie’

    The Fab Four’s second film, shot in vivid colour, captured a very different group demeanor to that in A Hard Day’s Night. For that first effort they’d been pumped up on pills; this time around, they were laid back on the “herbal jazz cigarettes”. And director Dick Lester, together with cinematographer David Watkin, conveyed the blissed-out vibe via stunning photography, innovative graphics and offbeat comedy.
    The result, at the time widely regarded as inferior to its predecessor, is now acclaimed as a pop-art gem that, very much of its time, also helped to define its era while serving as a wide-ranging source of influence and inspiration.
    Towering above all, of course, were those personalities and their music…

    Episode #24 – ‘Walking on Thin Ice – Did Yoko Really Help to Break Up The Beatles?’

    Episode #24 – ‘Walking on Thin Ice – Did Yoko Really Help to Break Up The Beatles?’

    50 years after The Beatles’ demise, Yoko Ono is still portrayed online and by the media as the quintessential witch who broke up a famous relationship and ruined a great thing. But did she really earn this reputation? And, if not, should she shoulder at least some of the blame for the group’s demise?
    A multi-layered topic, it sparks a lively conversation and clashing opinions, punctuated by The Beatles’ own recollections and a predictably eclectic collection of tracks.

    Episode #23 - 'Crying, Waiting, Hoping - The Beatles' Decca Audition'

    Episode #23 - 'Crying, Waiting, Hoping - The Beatles' Decca Audition'

    The music, the inspirations, the motivations, the performances, the reservations, the fallout... as well as the cloak-and-dagger story behind how the session tape was bootlegged. Here’s what really happened behind the doors of Decca’s Broadhurst Gardens studio in northwest London—as well as in altogether more covert circumstances on the other side of the Atlantic more than a decade later.

    Episode #22 – ‘Leaving the Material World – The Last Years of George Harrison’

    Episode #22 – ‘Leaving the Material World – The Last Years of George Harrison’

    Physically fighting cancer and a crazed attacker while mentally preparing for his transition to the next phase of his spiritual journey, the youngest Beatle navigated the last stage of his earthly existence with characteristic faith, bravery… and humour. At the same time, racing to record an album worthy of closing out a legendary career, he wrote some of his most poetic lyrics to reflect and comment on the past, present and future—complemented by sublime musicianship that resulted in one of the greatest of all posthumous releases.
    Here’s the dramatic, sometimes harrowing, ultimately inspirational final chapter of a man whose humanity and creativity crossed paths with a mass of contradictions.

    Episode #21 – ‘When They Was Fab – The Beatles on TV 1962-1966’

    Episode #21 – ‘When They Was Fab – The Beatles on TV 1962-1966’

    Charming, funny, provocative, hugely talented and already seasoned stage professionals—The Beatles were perfect for television during an era when sales of television sets were skyrocketing. And TV was also the ideal, all-encompassing promotional tool for the Fab Four. So, it was a symbiotic relationship.
    At first, they were more than happy to not only perform their songs, but also participate in comedy sketches… until they no longer needed to. This show examines the group’s halcyon TV years—and provides viewer sound recordings of several ultra-rare, ‘long lost’ broadcasts.
