Beginning the their first performance in Liverpool and Hamburg nightclubs, this documentary - now available for the first time on DVD - follows the incredible rise of The Beatles to a worldwide phenomenon. You can feel the excitement and witness the hysteria surrounding their first trip to the United States for an appearance on the "Ed Sullivan Show". A performance that first exposed the four mop-tops to a North American Audience. There are many "behind the scenes" insights into the group giving us a glimpse into John, Paul, George and Ringo rarely seen.
We follow the boys on their journey through their first film, "A Hard Days Night," through an offhand remark by John Lennon that was so controversial; it caused many to boycott the band's records. The journey continues through the recording of "Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," as we watch John, Paul, George and Ringo experiment with psychedelia and meditation before eventually embarking on separate musical and personal paths.
We meet Yoko Ono as she enters John's life and eventually that of The Beatles. We follow John & Yoko through their "Bed-In" for peace and the controversy that followed their relationship.
This DVD documents the energy of the '60s, the idealism of the '70s and - for some - the disillusionment of the '80s. Our saga ends tragically with John's death and John looking back and answering questions on life, drugs and peace. It's a stirring tribute to four boys from Liverpool who conquered the world and changed the direction of popular music forever.
