DVD_Lennon_NYC This documentary aired earlier this summer by the BBC in an 80 minutes  version. This DVD, however, is a 115 minutes version, released by Living Colour  Entertainment.

by David Bedford, author of "Liddypool, Birthplace of The Beatles" (see our 'books' section)

Liddypool_dvdNow the born Scouser has released a DVD about The Beatles' Liverpool and he takes the viewer on a trip around the city through pictures and film showing them the true Liddypool story.

Welcome To Liddypool features biographies of John, Paul, George, Stuart, Pete, Ringo & Brian. You're going to to all Beatles places possible, like the Casbah, the Cavern, Penny Lane, Strawberry Field.
Like the book the DVD tells the story from their birth to their pre-fab period as a band. David even tells the story of their first trip to Hamburg in August 1960 through the Netherlands (arrival in Rotterdam, not Amsterdam), with stops at the Oosterbeek war cemetery and the music shop in Arnhem. Also featured is the city of Liverpool in its post-war years with some great footage of that time. Visit the Dingle, Speke, Calderstones Park and many other famous Beatles locations.
This DVD is an excellent document for those who are not yet familiar with early Beatles history. David shows you all there is to know. And for all those who've already been there and seen it, it's a great complement to the book and the CD.

The DVD is a limited edition so make sure to get one now! You can order your copy at www.beatlesshop.co.uk

“Nowhere Boy” – the critically acclaimed film biopic about John Lennon’s teenage years which led to his musical career from the Quarrymen to his early relationship with Paul McCartney and George Harrison when the Beatles first set off to Hamburg is officially released on DVD now. The LIMITED EDITION contains the movie as well as the original 18-song soundtrack on CD, and a booklet featuring the story and lots of pictures from the movie.

Young JohnFeaturing the directorial debut of Sam Taylor-Wood and screenplay by Matt Greenhalgh (who wrote the script for the 2007 Joy Division film Control), the film recently closed the prestigious London Film Festival and to rapturous applause and rave reviews, prompting comparisons with the runaway success of Slumdog Millionaire.

A really essential addition to Beatles collections, if you want to know about John Lennon's real life before The Beatles became the "FAB 4".
It tells the story about how John at the age of fifteen meets his mother (again) and builds up a new relationship with her until she was killed in a traffic accident in 1958. It also tells how he learns to like and play the music that will make him famous.
This movie ends where the other 'must have' movie "Backbeat" begins.
To complete this story, also read Julia Baird's book "Imagine This".

This film features a wealth of British talent, including a career-defining performance from Aaron Johnson as the young John Lennon, plus outstanding performances from Kristin Scott Thomas as Aunt Mimi and Anne Marie Duff as John’s mother.  The film has received Yoko Ono’s blessing.
