Spencer Leigh, Liverpudlian, DJ for BBC Radio Merseyside and investigator of the Beatles phenomenon for over 40 years, together with Beatles historian Ray O'Brien, explore over sixty key Beatles sites, including the Cavern Club, and the homes where John, Paul and George were brought up, as well as the three houses with associations to Ringo's childhood. At the same time, we meet on location over twenty personalities who made the Liverpool scene the epicenter of the '60s cultural explosion, including Alan Williams (the man who gave away the Beatles), Bill Harry (friend of the Beatles, and founder of the immensely influential paper 'Mersey Beat'), Kingsize Taylor, (the man who brought Rock 'N' Roll into Liverpool), and that's just for starters. This mammoth 5 1/2 hour program is essential viewing for anyone who was around at the time, and all the others who wish they had been!
