... and, next, a documentary on "Jet", Paul's old golden-retriever...

... and another one about one of the plants that Brian Epstein had in his appartment...

Freda Kelly was given a front row seat by the universe and got to know The Beatles when they first arrived onto The Cavern scene back in 1961 – even before they met Brian Epstein!

Freda was not only most fortunate to be one of their earliest admirers, but to eventually become very good friends with each one of the boys.

In 1962, when Brian started representing The Beatles, Freda, who initially knew the band’s legendary manager as owner of the NEMS record shop in Liverpool, was offered a job as his secretary and - the rest as they say - is history.

Freda was only seventeen years old at the time.


Freda Kelly then became The Beatles fan club secretary and started to work closely with The Lads on a regular basis - she mailed autographed pictures to die-hard fans, she typed letters until her fingers ached, she stuffed tens of thousands of envelopes, she also watched the group play and create their new Liverpool sound, she attended their private family functions, and she worked eight days a week dedicating herself heart, mind, and soul to Beatles fans world-wide, for she was one of us!

Freda was right by The Beatles’ side from the very beginning all the way through their Apple years, retaining her status as a trusted and much-loved friend as well as a most valuable employee.
On a lighter note, who could ever forget The Beatles first Christmas record when George Harrison thanked her for all her hard work and then the other lads shout out “Good Ol’ FREEEEDAAA!” Freda was also a passenger on The Magical Mystery Tour Bus back in 1967 and still rides along in it to this very day with the rest of us – a billion strong!

I think a documentary on her decade of life with The Beatles could be nothing short of fascinating.

And I think just about every real Beatles fan would agree.
