I recommend the version shown in the UK only, NOT the bastardized A&E Biography show!
20 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved most of this production and also both of the superb Debbie Geller books on Brian Epstein. However, this documentary could have done without the sappy floating face closeups of Brian. Also, he was very often a happy, funny guy: the sad pathetic Eppy should have been balanced by more of a look into his brilliant wit and humor (parts of his personality he kept out of the public eye so as not to take any attention away from his boys -- who, by the way, in private he could match in repartee). Shamefully, there is precious little good material available on Brian Epstein, a man whose vision changed the world.

By the way, the American A&E Biography version of this production had been cut up so badly it bore no resemblance to the original Bafta award-winning UK documentary. Not to mention the fact that A&E blatantly lied about his manner of death for publicity purposes. The Wikipedia entry on Mr. Epstein comes closer to the truth, if you care to search for that.
