Have just watched "The Beatles On Record" on BBC2 here in the UK. Clearly, it's the minidocumentaries that are to be included in the newly remastered cds.
It was ok, not quite as brimming with unheard stuff as I'd have liked, but it was nice.
The previous show, Timewatch: Beatlemania told the story of the groups' touring years, with some very nice footage that I'd not seen before. Overall, this was more satisfying than "The Beatles On Record", due to the footage of the Candlestick Park gig, taken by an amateur cameraman. Interestingly, the music played did seem to be clearer, though I was impressed more with "Act Naturally" more than anything else I heard. Just on one hearing, that is. John's acoustic guitar was clearer to my ears. The rest sounded ok, just not astounding.
What do others think about these programmes?
