Rare Beatles footage emerges etc
BBC News report that pop memorabilia collector Mark Hayward came across rare footage of the Beatles at an auction in the late 1990s. It shows the band performing in Blackpool in August 1963 as Beatlemania began to kick in.
Now Mark Hayward is releasing the footage to the public for the first time, as part of his forthcoming book and DVD, “The Beatles, On Camera, Off Guard 1963-1969”.
You can find out more about this story on Inside Out South East, tonight at 7.30pm on BBC1 or on BBC iPlayer.
Watch some of the footage on BBC’s site.

LET IT BE ON THE SILVER SCREEN
And if you’re in Philadelphia, make sure you go and see “Let It Be” Friday, October 23 at 8:00 pm over at the Moore College of Art & Design at 20th & Race Streets.
Presented by Secret Cinema, admission is only $7.00, and as their slogan is “all secret cinema presentations are shown in 16mm film on a giant screen (not video…not ever!)”, you should get a good experience. At their web site, they claim that what they are showing is “archival, dye-transfer Technicolor print” and “projected from real film on the big screen”.
