Even though The Beatles were originally
from Liverpool, when they became famous they had to
move to London, as the music industry was based in the
Capital. Although they never forgot their roots, The
'Fab Four' were very much at the centre of what became
known as 'Swinging London'.
Presented by Richard Porter, professional Beatles tour
guide, author of the book "Guide to the Beatles
London" and owner of the Beatles Coffee Shop, this
DVD takes you around all the major Beatles sites in
London. Co-presenters include Tom Murray, photographer
on The Beatles 'Mad Day' photo session in 1968; and
Beatles author and collector Keith Badman.
The DVD is produced by Artsmagic, who have also released
DVDs of The Beatles Liverpool and Hamburg.
Sites visited include: Abbey Road; 3 Savile Row, where The
Beatles gave their last ever live performance on the roof;
film sites for A Hard Day's Night and Help; their former homes;
clubs where they used to hang out, and many more. We also
see INSIDE the studio where The Beatles recorded Hey Jude.
The DVD also features interviews with David Janson, the then
child actor who appeared in A Hard Day's Night; and Beatles
author and 'Mersey Beat' publisher Bill Harry.
A highlight is an interview Chris Dreja, guitarist of The
Yardbirds, who supported The Beatles on their Christmas Show
in 1964, on the very stage where they performed and backstage
in the dressing rooms. Learn which famous song Paul McCartney
played to The Yardbirds some eight months before it was released.
Presenter Richard Porter guides five scheduled Beatles tours
a week, and is also available for private tours. For more

the pop scene, and as the leader of the ultimate supergroup,
The Beatles, John Lennons significance has been
seen to spread far beyond the rock n roll
Despite having been demonized when he claimed The Beatles
were more popular than Jesus Christ, Lennon, a supreme
