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