Synopsis by Nathan Southern
The new epic documentary The Beatles Liverpool: A Magical History Tour acts as a companion piece to such illuminating glimpses into the lives of the Fab Four as The Compleat Beatles and The Beatles: From the Beginning...to the End. But unlike those prior films, this effort approaches its subject from an unusual angle. It explores the Beatles via the famous borough of their childhoods. This program tours the Beatles' old haunts in Liverpool, including the legendary Cavern Club, the Strawberry Field orphanage, Penny Lane, and the houses in which the members of the Fab Four were raised. This five-and-a-half-hour film is jam-packed with interviews with those who knew and associated with John, Paul, George, and Ringo in the early years, such as the Mersey Beat founder, Bill Harry, initial manager Alan Williams, and their contemporary rock & roll musician Kingsize Taylor of the Star Club in Hamburg, Germany.
