Did You Know?

The two new songs, "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love", were originally John Lennon demos. The three surviving Beatles added instrumentation to the demos and released the songs as singles in conjunction with the release of the special. In addition, John hadn't filled in the middle eight section of the demo for "Free As A Bird", so the surviving Beatles wrote a new section for that, which, according to Paul, was one of the reasons for choosing the song. It allowed them some input.See more »

In one of the segments, a little girl claims her new favorite band is "Herman and the Hermits." Is this an actual band?
Are there any substantial differences/extras/etc. in the DVD version that weren't in the VHS edition?

A true treasure for any true Beatlemaniac, 14 March 2002
Author: Sebastiannils1 from Helsingborg, Sweden

Amazing, I see the four figures on the TV screen and as usual when I see them they I get very concentrated. The interviews are outstanding and all the questions are satisfactory(to say the least) answered.

Paul, Ringo and the late John and George are so good that you wish that you were born in the fifties just so that you could see this band perform live. New things that I did not know of was said mostly about Ringo but some of the others too.

And the music is not so bad either
