Eight Days a Week DVD for the media

A vendor in Brazil recently sold a copy of a DVD of “Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years” on Ebay. Here’s the description: “On offer here is an ultra rare Beatles demo DVD “Eight Days A Week” (Issued only for the edia, the menu contains 1) Eight Days A Week (compleat movie) 2) Eight Days A Week (official trailer) 3) Help! (Intertel clip colorized) 4) I Feel Fine (Intertel clip colorized) 5) Don’t Let Me Down, (rooftop 1969)”.

This raises a few questions, given that this is a legitimate item. In the film, the colourised “Help!” was not the Intertel promo, they colourised a Blackpool televised concert performance of the song. No colourised Intertel “I Feel Fine” in the film either. The description of the bonus items for the November DVD and Blu-ray release makes no mention of including these promos. The version of “Help!” in the bonus material is labeled as live in concert and is probably the Blackpool performance. The full “Don’t Let Me Down” rooftop performance was not in the film, it was segued into “I’ve Got A Feeling” (McCartney gave directions about exactly where the songs should segue into each other).
The ebay item was very reasonably priced.
