Hm. They usually don't run UK TV shows in the US, unfortunately, unless they prove to be such a big draw that they see big money in it.

I hope they give Brian all the credit that's rightfully his for a change.
Probably won't, though.

Maybe VH1 or some such will decide to air it someday, if it's not too expensive.

Nah. We don't get UKTV on this side of the pond. We have satellite hook-up and are lucky to have BBC-America. That's about it from the UK. It does sound pretty interesting, tho.

good old bbc! Always has something intresting on! and skyone which I think has mainly american shows!
E4 is another gooden!

But I don't think we get stuff like abc over here! not sure really!

I looked through the tv guide thing and theres 5 programmes of it I think!
What it does is show the beatles through the years and the other important events happening at the same time!
such as the first show, shows the beatles in Hamburg whist the cuban missile crisis is happenning and it goes up through their career! looks good!
shame you americans will miss it!

I might be in Spain the whole week but I will no doubt record it!

Yeah, we get it here. But nobody watches it!

My idea for a Beatles series would be a drama set in Liverpool
in the '50's when they were kids. The plots would be seen
from the point of view of George, who had the "undramatic"
childhood. He could be a character like Kevin from "The Wonder
Years" or Buddy from "Family," a thoughtful kid with a unique
perspective. Lots of possiblities for plotlines, each featuring a
particular Beatle or a family member. Better to be shown as a
cable series or a PBS series as it won't make it on network.

If any of you literary/media types decide to develop this, I want money.

The WB/UPN should NOT get their hands on it. Otherwise they'll turn it into some angsty Dawson's Creek type of show.

It's bad enough they ruined Superman...

Did you watch the series Lucy and Sandy?

I recorded it and have watched the first episode!

It's not like a acting thing, it just has a mans voice talking about the early 60's (in the first episode) and showing the odd beatles influence and what they were doing around the time of the major events happenening! Still quite intresting and I will watch the rest of the episodes soon!

You don't know what I'd do for some good television around here.
I never actually watch TV.
I've got everything I need on DVD,
but it gets terribly redundant.
You can only watch Family Guy and Friends so many times!
