BBC4 To Rebroadcast Sgt. Pepper’s Musical Revolution Friday 10th November
This Friday 10th November, enjoy an evening of Beatles films with BBC4.
There is a rebroadcasting Sgt. Pepper’s Musical Revolution - with the help of outtakes and studio conversations between the band - never heard before outside of Abbey Road - composer Howard Goodall: "Gets under the bonnet of Sgt Pepper. He takes the music apart and reassembles it, to show us how it works - and makes surprising connections with the music of the last 1,000 years to do so.”
This is preceded at 9.30pm by "How the Beatles Rocked the Kremlin".
This film meets the Soviet Beatles generation and hears their stories about how the Fab Four changed their lives, including Putin's deputy premier Sergei Ivanov, who explains how the Beatles helped him learn English and showed him another life.
Millions of young people fell in love with the Beatles and the culture of the Cold War enemy, and defected emotionally from the Soviet system. The Beatles prepared the cultural way for the fall of the Berlin Wall and ultimately helped to wash away the foundations of that system.
At 11.30pm BBC presents the Arena documentary "Magical Mystery Tour Revisited"
"What propelled The Beatles to make this surreal, startling and - at the time - utterly misunderstood film? Arena presents the greatest Beatles story never told, a blockbuster double-bill. Beginning with a documentary full of fabulous Beatles archive material never shown before anywhere in the world."
Following the documentary - Roll up roll up for the Magical Mystery Tour main feature!
