Its was good it was more of a social history programme really about the 60's rather than the Beatles.

Thumbs up

I watched some of it (maybe 3 episodes?) and yeah would agree it was more of a social history thing than a beatles thing. I found it to be rather dated and didn't enjoy it all that much but better than a lot of the stuff on offer!

Well, I guess I can take a pass then when it finally airs over here on BBC America in about a decade. Maybe I'll take that time to watch some more of my Anthology videos.

I'd be interested in seeing it, if only to see another example of the different viewpoint ~ of how the English experienced the 60's, in contrast to how I lived through it.

And I know I tend to sound like a broken record, but whenever something is out, I always want to know:

Was there anything of Brian Epstein in it?

If anyone would be so kind. Cheers!

I havn't seen it all yet but there wasn't much I don't think about Brian in the first episode but that was the really early years!
Maybe Lucy or someone could give you a better answer?

Yeah there was a bit about Brian in one I saw....all about when he first saw them in the cavern and then how he did deals regarding their first visit to the States. Not too much or anything special though - nothing you won't have heard before. I only saw a couple of them remember so the chances are that there was more detail on him on the one that would have dealt with his death.

Thanks to both of you! Hopefully someday we "statesiders" will be graced with a glimpse.

And, because American television feels obliged to always change things, hopefully it won't be as messed-up as the 1999 Arena special "The Brian Epstein Story" was when A&E Biography butchered it up.

Actually, except Debbie Geller's contributions to the show, the original UK special was done in a pathetic manner... and then A&E's cuts (and subsequent lying in their promos for it) made it into a total trainwreck.

(I hope our new movie will be soooo much better!)
