THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK

Central Otago Mirror - - FOOD FOR THOUGHT -

If you en­joyed Prime TV’s ex­cel­lent Sound­break­ing se­ries ear­lier this year, then you’ll ab­so­lutely adore this dip into the archives of the Fab Four. Ron Howard’s in­ti­mate, in­no­va­tive and in­tensely in­ter­est­ing doc­u­men­tary charts the progress of the mop-topped, quar­tet from the cel­lars of Liver­pool to the mak­ing of Sgt Pep­per. Through a stun­ning com­bi­na­tion of archival video and au­dio footage, later in­ter­views with Ge­orge Har­ri­son and John Len­non and mod­ern­day chats with sur­viv­ing mem­bers Ringo Starr and Paul Mc­Cart­ney, Howard has cre­ated a tale that will both stir long­dor­mant mem­o­ries for baby boomers and pro­vide deeper in­sight into The Beatles phe­nom­e­non and legacy for the gen­er­a­tions who never saw them in their prime.
