A great Ron Howard production, collating the Beatles story from numerous angles. Some repetition began to wear a little but this work provided fantastic insight into the Fab Four and their fans. Adelaide, South Australia was also a star!

Description

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years

Beatlemania was not just a phenomenon. It was the catalyst for a cultural shift that would alter the way people around the world viewed and consumed popular culture. This film explains what it was about that particular moment in time that allowed this cultural pivot point to occur, examining the social and political context of the time, and revealing the unique conditions that caused technology and mass communication to collide. The film also explores the incomparable electricity between performer and audience that turned the music into a movement – a common experience into something sublime.

Special Features

  • Over 100 minutes of special features covering all aspects of The Beatles early career right up to 1966.
  • Includes five rarely seen full length performances.

Two disc set plus 64 page booklet with an introduction from director Ron Howard, essay by music journalist and author Jon Savage and rare photos from The Beatles’ private archive.

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years Reviews

“Eight Days a Week captures John, Paul, George and Ringo at their youthful charismatic peak: brimming with wit in their encounters with the press; bursting with energy on stage.” – Movie Talk

“No new revelations, but a nice historic overview with a few wonderful, rarely-seen clips that make it worth your while.” – Movie Nation

“Ron Howard's docu­mentary rightly keeps coming back to the music and the band's delight in making it. Good move. It truly is a joy forever.” – Rolling Stone
