The Beatles Anthology


The Beatles Anthology (TV Series)

Released 19th November 1995

"George and I shared an apartment in Green Street, Park Lane... Wow! £45 a week. A fortune."


"We got backstage to see Maharishi and I said to him: 'Got any mantras?'"


"I should have said television is more popular than Jesus; then I might have got away with it."


"Miami! That was just like paradise because we'd never been anywhere with palm trees."


The Beatles Anthology is the Grammy Award winning 3 part miniseries that tells, in the Beatles' own words, the dramatic and astonishing story of the most influential band in rock history.

The series charts the official history of the Beatles from their earliest days in Liverpool up to the break up of the group in 1970. Using a mixture of archive footage, home movies, never before seen concert footage and unheard studio tracks, together with interviews with the Beatles themselves, the Anthology invites you as John Lennon would say 'into the eye of the hurricane'.

Originally screened on the ABC Network in 1995.
