The show was produced by American Al Brodax (now aged 90!), who went on to produce the classic Yellow Submarine film in 1968.
Apple Corps bought the rights to the series in the ’90s, meaning a DVD release could be a possibility. Let’s hope so, along with Let It Be.
The series didn’t have its debut on British television until 1980 when it featured on early morning TV on Granada, and not in full till 1988.
Each episode has four songs in it – two are part of the story, two are “singalongs”, often used more than once in the series.
