The Beatles MerseysideStreaming Video - 2008
This wide-ranging program visits locations both sides of the river Mersey where the Beatles honed their talents. Sites are as varied as Bootle, the tough industrial town; New Brighton, the fairground paradise of Liverpudlians; and Southport, the more sedate Edwardian approximation of a seaside resort. Included are visits to the Merseybeat New Brighton museum and the Liverpool Post. The graves of John Lennon's mother and Brian Epstein are also included. Then meet a wide range of Liverpudlians, the people whose warmth and dry wit was shared by the group, and was an integral part of their launch into super-stardom.
