INTERESTING DOCUMENTARIES ABOUT THE BEATLES



There are numerous documentaries about the Beatles that it is almost impossible to list them all; especially since 2013, at least two documentary films have been produced each year. I made a playlist of the few surviving documentaries on YouTube (which I am constantly updating), it starts with the first main Beatles documentary "The Long and Winding Road", a documentary co-produced by roadie Neil Aspinall and Apple Films: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uV_086oXZA&list=PLlqXiBY2sa0QT89mzZGuUbDReMLhhA7E8 

Of course, there are a few must-watch Beatles documentaries that should be seen before watching any other documentary about the band; those films are: the "Anthology" from 1995/96 and John Lennon's "Imagine" from 1988.

I would suggest at least one Sgt.Pepper's documentary from the many that have been produced (you can find three of my favourite Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club documentary posted in this blog: http://sgtpepperchannel.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/the-best-sgtpeppers-documentaries.html) and the recent “Eight Days A Week”, directed by Ron Howard .(https://my.mail.ru/mail/kazbekov_1957/video/_myvideo/2060.html).

However, I'm here to share a couple of documentary that can't be found on YouTube ... or anywhere online (at least not easy to find, especially when the uploaders title them differently from the original/official name).



Beatles on Records 


The first is a documentary made entirely using audio interviews and music from the Beatles and George Martin called Beatles on Records produced by History Channel in 2009.
This documentary is also available on YouTube under the name Beatles in the studio and has Spanish subtitles.


Note: there is a little mistake at minute 3'25" when it comes to date the publishing of Please Please Me: 
PPM was released in March 1963, not January as this documentary says ....  

All You Need Is Cash 

Another pretty interesting documentary is “All You Need Is Cash” - Not to be confused with the Rutles film !
This is a Channel 4 (UK) documentary from 2007 about The Beatles' finances, tax & business deals from the early days to the present. Features interviews with Phillip Norman, George Martin, NEMS Director Geoffrey Ellis, documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles, Geoff Wonfor, Lew Grade, May Pang and Beatles author Allan Kozinn. http://bootlegzone.com/album.php?name=ycdvd067


These is the poster of Beatles on records (2009), All You Need Is Cash (2007) and Parting Ways (2010)



Parting Ways


"Parting Ways" is a 52 minutes documentary about the life of the Beatles after their split in 1970. Going in the order of John, Paul, George and Ringo, each of the Beatles is given a little over 10 minutes of air time in this film that seems to take a lot of liberties and uses a lot of stock film footage that was also used in Strange Fruit.




All Together Now

A less interesting but not notorious documentary is "All Together Now": a 2008 documentary on the creation and behind the scenes of the Cirque du Soleil stage production of "LOVE" and partnership between the remaining Beatles and families.



These are the posters for All Together Now and Cirque du Soleil.




The making of the Magical Mystery Tour

In August 2012, a deluxe edition of the Magical Mystery Tour was released in the US. Among the extras there was a 19 minutes documentary produced by BBC simply called “The making of the Magical Mystery Tour”. This documentary is available to watch in the BBC website for UK residents but no one else, so, to make it visible to everybody, I uploaded on my archive channel.

Our World (TV special) 1967

Our World was the first live television production, which was broadcast worldwide on 25 June 1967 via satellite.
During the program events from around the world were shown, perhaps the Beatles sequence is the most popular of this TV show. Among the guests, singing the chorus during the performance, were members of The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Marianne Faithfull, Keith Moon and Graham Nash.
The Beatles were live at 8:54 GMT (that's amazing! How did they get John out of bed so early?!)
... and a special hand-clap for the Australians that got up at 4.50 AM ! ☺
More details can be found on Wikipedia : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_World_(TV_special)
and here : https://www.honeysucklecreek.net/other_stations/cooby_creek/our_world.html
... I'm more interested in showing the actual film, which speaks for itself.



Colour TVs weren't as common as today back in the 60s, so the program was broadcasted in black and white, however, in 1995, a colourised version was created for TV special The Beatles Anthology, using colour photographs taken at the scene as reference.



Some of the outtakes / base-track records can be found in the bootlegs "Magical Mystery Tour (Back to the basics)" available to download for free here: http://octaner.blogspot.co.uk/2015/12/magical-mystery-tour-back-to-basics.html

Beatles references and appearances in cartoon TV Series and puppetry shows.

This blog will cover the content of the following videos:

Beatles references and appearances in cartoon TV Series
https://youtu.be/9WpWwlvkkas
Featuring: The Simpsons, South Park, Family Guy, Futurama, American Dad, Powerpuff Girls, CatDog, My Little Pony, Flintstones, Steven Universe, Teen Titans, Robot Chicken and many more.
NOTE: this is another upload, the one from my channel got deleted.


Beatles references and appearances in Puppet Shows
https://youtu.be/U6KJJjEK4Ao
Featuring: The Muppet Show, Sesame Street/Sesame Tree (one is from US the other from UK), Spitting Image and more.




There are many blogs that treat subjects like Beatles references and appearances in songs, movies and general pop culture. However, these blogs usually only talk about it, except in a few occasions a link is thrown in, but most of the times they leave the actual reference to you to find. In the SgtPepperChannel blog and channel we covered most of the references in music and films, both with a 50 minutes video and this time we will look at all the Beatles references and appearances in cartoons from TV Series and puppets animations/sketches from kids programs. Making these sort of video is almost impossible to release publicly as copyright infringements usually ends up in taking the video down, in fact the YouTube upload lasted less than a week and was barely viewed (it got only 3000 views), so, one more time Google Drive comes at hand. This compilation contains the full episode of Celebrity Deathmatch, the unedited musicvideo of Ringo's song in The Powerpuff Girls, the extended scene of Ned Flander's Beatles collection (The Simpsons) and the unedited Mad Mod chase from Teen-TitansAnd it also contains the clips from the "Beatles on Puppet Shows". 
This blog is great if you want to share both subjects at once.
Let me apology on advance for any eventual mistakes or misspellings.

 

PS: I anyone of you knows why Google Drive doesn't upload this video in 720 pixel and also knows a solution, please, let me know how to fix it.
***********************************************************************
MISSING CLIPS:

Not long after I uploaded the video on YouTube I received a suggestion in the comments, quoting Back At The Barnyar. I found this clip featuring an imaginary band called the The Weevils.



On JoJo's Bizarre Adventure many of the character's names are references to the Beatles. Example: Erina Pendleton's name is possibly based on a mispronunciation of Eleanor Rigby ;  Rubber Soul is named after the Beatles album Rubber Soul. ; Ghiaccio's White Album is named after the Beatles' album "The Beatles", nicknamed "White Album" by the fans ;  Lucy Steel's Stand is named after the song of the same name by The Beatles; and others ...See the full list here: http://jojo.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_cultural_references_in_JoJo%27s_Bizarre_Adventure
As all the episodes are in Japanese, it was too demanding to follow the whole episode(s) only to understand who is who and if the clip is worth to be used; also I had trouble distinguishing the references in the cartoon from the one in the comic book … it is just too much work for this animation series. 


A couple of months after this project was published, one of my favourite podcast presented a special episode dedicated to the references to the Beatles in the Simpsons cartoon. Unfortunately, I can’t embed the podcast to this vlog, so you will have to click this link to access it. http://somethingaboutthebeatles.com/122-simpsons-stories/

This podcast mentions a few clips missing from the main video of this blog.
A very funny one is the end of the credits in “D'oh-in' in the Wind” (S10E06) where homer said “I buried Flanders”.
CLIP COMING SOON !

The other is from “The Mysterious Voyage of Homer” (S08E09) quoting “goo goo g'joob !”




The main idea was to make a unique video for cartoons and puppetry, both because I wanted to keep the video to a certain length and also because many fonts complain that puppets are not animation.

But, since the YouTube upload has been deleted the two subjects will be blended into a unique video.
However part 1 of the video is just cartoons, part 2 is puppets.

An extended clip I could share is the one produced in 1988 by Spitting Image featuring Paul McCartney, The Who, The Rolling Stones and other rock stars. Somehow most of you find these clips from Spitting Image disturbing. So, maybe viewer discretion is advised.



 And here another puppets video recently suggested: Kermit The Frog - I've Got My Mind Set On You (2001) - MDA Telethon



***********************************************************************
FULL EPISODES

I could have had included the entire episode of some cartoons like I did for Celebrity Deathmatch, but I was very concerned about the length of this video compilation, and anyway I already planned to create this blogpost and post here the most important episodes in full.
The first has to be the one of The Powerpuff Girls called "Meet the Beat Alls", the entire episode is a Beatles reference. The plot goes that the for villains joins together and becomes invincible so get called the Beat-Alls. You can check all the references in this video : https://youtu.be/7raxJUDldDs



Another interesting cartoon that is not mentioned in the main collection is the episode number four two of the second season of BoJack Horseman called "After the Party". In this episode there is a very special guest: Paul McCartney! Indeed that’s Sir McCartney voicing himself.
The episode was aired on July 17, 2015.
Here’s the full clip: Paul’s scene is at the end.



Same thing for the children cartoon Wonder Pets!. The episode "Save The Beetles!" has the fab four in beetle version as main characters throughout he entire video. The Beetles get stuck with their submarine among some seaweed and Wonderpets save them. The Beetles play a concert  to thank them. This cartoon is more suitable for a young public.


 
Another cartoon with "beetles" as main characters is Timon & Pumbaa in the episode "Rocky Mountain Lie". Sorry for the format of this video.



The next cartoons are (no wonder) from The Simpsons (Matt Groening is a big fan).
The one with most references is the first episode of season 5, "Homer's Barbershop Quartet". The plot resembles a in many aspects stories of the Beatles and in this episode George Harrison plays a cameo as himself in two scenes.




The next one is "Lisa is a vegetarian" with Paul and Linda McCartney as guest. Their scene is towards the end, and for this episode they used the song Maybe I'm Amazed in the credits.



If you listened closely at the music in the credits you may have heard some backwards voices. That's Paul reading a recipe for a really ripping lentil soup ! Here you can hear that message played in reverse.



The other Beatle to appear as voicing of own character is Ringo Starr. Ringo has the most lines between the three episodes ... well, as we know Ringo is a good actor. This is the episode number 218 ("Brush With Greatness").



The other Simpsons episodes with most references to the Beatles is "The Bart of War" (Season 14 episode 21). Bart and Milhouse break into Ned Flander's basement/Beatles Museum … and the wreck it.




************************************************************
Since I'm sharing full episodes here's a one with a short parody of the Beatles/Simon & Garfunkel performance at the Ed Sullivan Show made by Animaniacs. The trilogy episode (Season 3 Episode 15) has a reference in the name : "A Hard Day's Warner / Gimme a Break / Please Please Please Get a Life Foundation".



Among these cartoons with reference to the Beatles in the title there is the episode "Every Little Thing She Does" of My Little Ponies (MPL).
I didn't watch this cartoon in full, I only looked at the transcription and didn't notice any important quote, so I guess it just doesn't have any direct reference at all (if you watch it and perhaps find anything relevant, please let me know, I will add it to this blog (or update the main video) : https://my.mail.ru//mail/billy.shears/video/_myvideo/64.html




If you would like to see in full some of the cartoons presented in this collection let me know in the comments. For now, I think these are the ones who need to be seen in full.

In case anyone of you is Italian, I have the clip from Detective Conan dubbed in Italian. And if you speak Spanish I have the clip from "Communuts" by Histeria! in Spanish.




An honorable mention goes to The Simpsons, Sesame Tree and Teletubbies doing the Abbey Road crossing.

  
    

************************************************************
This is actually the third time I made and published this video and every time it got blocked after reaching thousands of views, but, because it is an interesting subject I don't mind re-working on it. From now on this compilation will be my backup video.
If you would like sharing this video but you think it is too long, then there is a SUPERCUTS version too available !




If you know any other reference that wasn't listed here, please leave a comment (or leave it on the main YouTube video: https://youtu.be/lOrOz5fvSxU

… and I might even stop here. I could make an entire blog about Beatles in comic books.

I'll leave a link to four videos I made containing the whole comic book.

The best documentaries on the Sgt.Pepper

Though all these decades numerous documentaries about the Beatles has been released and so a lot about the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
Recently, a new documentary on the Pepper year has been released and screened in the cinemas across the world. I'm talking about "It Was 50 Years Ago Today! (The Beatles: Sgt Pepper & Beyond)".

It Was 50 Years Ago Today! (The Beatles: Sgt Pepper & Beyond)
REVIEW and SPOILERS
This documentary is a sort of continue of "Eight Days A Week", it starts with the ending of touring, followed by develop of the Sgt.Pepper's idea and into the studio recordings. It continues with the death of Brian Epstein, the formation of Apple and the trip to India.
Despite the title, this 2 hours film talks only shortly of the Sgt.Pepper album. At some point the conversation shifts onto Apple getting subject of the documentary completely off track, and only 6 minutes before the end it is flooded with quotes from the interviewees about random things while the video editor struggle to remind us that this is all about the Sgt.Pepper.

The interviews to the Beatles are all well known footages from the 60s, other interviewee includes Tony Bramwell, Julia Lennon, Philip Norman, Hunter Davis, Freda Kelly, jenny Boyd Pete Best and more.
It is poorly edited and does not contain Beatles music, but it has some very interesting curious facts to learn.
I will give it a 4 stars out of 5
☆☆☆☆

In this blog I will give everybody the chance to watch it in the contort of your room.
So, sit back and enjoy the show.

If you need a share-link to post it on Facebook, use this post I created on my Facebook page, it has a nice thumbnail and video description.

Sgt Pepper's Musical Revolution with Howard Goodall
On the 3rd of June this year BBC produced another Sgt.Pepper's documentary called "Sgt Pepper's Musical Revolution with Howard Goodall". This documentary is particularly good. Much better than the above one; the host Howard Goodall guides us though each recording session of each song of the LP, reveals curiosities and analyses the musical structure of each composition. In this documentary you can hear a lot of audio clips from the recent Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Deluxe boxset.
THIS IS A MUST WATCH !

It Was 20 Years Ago Today!
Last one [but this blog will be updated with more] a documentary from 1987 called "It Was 20 Years Ago Today!". It was released as the 20th anniversary of the album release and it is a masterpiece of documentary for that period. Strangely broadcasted only a couple of time on TV.

Rare Beatles Videos Have Resurfaced On The Web

You may have noticed how hard is to find Beatles music not only on YouTube but all over the internet. Since the Beatles catalogue had an extension on its copyrights a lot of videos have been removed and a lot of channels have been shut-down. For example, of the SgtPepperChannel there have been three before. Thanks to the fair use law many channels like can still use some of their music and clips but some copyrights infringements are often detected causing the video to be muted or disable on some mobile devices, that why I opened another SgtPepperChannel channel, but on another platform called Vidme and Mail.ru. I have other channels like on Dailymotion and Vimeo, but I am planning to transfer everything onto this new channel and use it as a main second channel.
This is the link : https://vid.me/SgtPepperChannel

A QUICK LOOK AT THE BEATLES COPYRIGHTS HISTORY OF PAST 30 YEARS 

The fights for Paul McCartney to regain the Beatles copyrights from Sony started in 2013 and will continue until 2018. They were famously purchased by Michael Jackson when he outbid McCartney $41.5m for The Beatles’ ATV Music catalogue in 1985. The Jackson estate sold its stake in the collection to Sony/ATV for $750 million last year.

It's been dubbed by the media as "Cliff Richard's Law", the change to copyright duration in sound recordings.
From 1 November 2013, The Copyright and Duration of Rights in Performances Regulations 2013 came into force, implementing the provisions of Directive 2011/77/EU which extended the term of copyright in sound recordings from 50 to 70 years. The change came after years of political wrangling and means that performers are entitled to receive income for an additional 20 years. Additional measures were also included to improve performers' revenue.

THE SGT.PEPPER CHANNEL IS EVERYWHERE !!!

Let's start with my best uploads from Vidme and Mail.ru.
Seven videos definitely deserves to be mentions:

The Official "Two of us" videoclip directed by Matt White of Supergrizzly Ltd. in 2003 for Let it Be Naked. A pencil animation with footage from the Get Back session that has never been largely shown on TV or elsewhere.




When the Yellow Submarine film was restored in 2012 the scene of Beatles meeting the doubles and the song Hey Bulldog was added. However, there was an alternate opening for the song "Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds" and it was sung by Jeremy Hillary Boob PhD.
This scene is not included in the DVD as deleted scene.
Watch out for the first verse lyrics.



While the next clip is taken from the Beatles cartoon episode #35 produced by Al Brodax and also used in 1966 as a promo video for the double A-side single "Eleanor Rigby/Yellow Submarine".
You can watch the full episode here : http://dai.ly/x2mqht
A non song-along version of Eleanor Rigby was also included in the episode #37: http://dai.ly/x2mu24


Paul McCartney has to say this regarding this song:
“ I was sitting at the piano when I thought of it. The first few bars just came to me, and I got this name in my head... 'Daisy Hawkins picks up the rice in the church'. I don't know why. I couldn't think of much more so I put it away for a day. Then the name Father McCartney came to me, and all the lonely people. But I thought that people would think it was supposed to be about my Dad sitting knitting his socks. Dad's a happy lad. So I went through the telephone book and I got the name McKenzie. ”





An alternated videoclip for "Rain", very different from the one made for the Ed Sullivan Show in 1966. #RobertFreeman



A videoclip made for "Working Class Heros" by John Lennon for the John Lennon Anthology in 1998, same as "Two of us" this videoclip has pretty rare to find.



The next four clips were previously uploaded by RevolverTV (aka RevolverMusicVideo) first on YouTube, later on Dailymotion. As much as I know this videos comes from a TV studio archive. Sadly the owner of the channel passed away in 2015, his son took over the administration of the channel but, as most Beatles videos those were taken down too.
The first is a whole unedited take of John and Ringo singing and playing throughout the "Hello Goodbye". Only a second or two of this take ended in the final editing of the official video.



While this other one has some extra editing towards the end of the clip. Most of it is just the Paul, John, George and Ringo weaving at the camera.



The other one is a completely different video for "I Am The Walrus" made from outtakes.



There's also an alternate version of "Strawberry Fields Forever" (I apology for all the watermarks on the clips, this is how I found them originally, I didn't place it).



We don't talk much about Ringo Starr in this blog.
So, here a less know promo video he made for the song "Early 1970".
I guess the other three ex-beatles didn't appreciated those clips of them on his music-video.

Podcast #4
Date: 6 September 2017

After almost 6 months I released a new mix. The reason I stopped making more is that whenever I share anything on Facebook I don't get any feedback, no likes ... nothing. Anyway, the 4 mixes have over 1200 visits. That means that someone out there found them interesting. Thanks God !



Songs included: Within you without you/Tomorrow never knows - Only A Northern Song (Alt.) - 7 Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (Geremia Boob Vocal Version) - 9 Baby You're A Rich Man (true Stereo version) - Hey Jude and many more.
FULL TRACK LISTING coming soon ...

A Tour Of The Most Famous Beatles Places In London


I live in Brighton, 60 miles south of London and nowadays is quite impossible planning a trip of such distance with our lifestyle, especially in big city like London with so many places to visit. However, I had the occasion to do the trip 3 times in the past 3 years and I compiled two videos with the film I captured. I turned the video in some sort of visual documentary.
If I don't share these clips here I don't know where else to post it. There are not on YouTube (copyright reasons).
