The Beatles: Eight Days a Week The Touring Years (Ron Howard, 2016)
Channel 4, 21:00
BBFC Rating: 12
Ron Howard took a break from documenting the Bluth family to put together this look at the crazy days of Beatlemania. It is a story that has been told many times before, but by focusing on the grueling touring that the band undertook, it does give another side to the Fab Four. Remastered performances and new interviews with Paul and Ringo make this a great watch – although you are left wanting more! Plus, we do take it for granted that The Beatles are great, almost as if they are preserved as pieces of history. To see them as real people, working and honing their craft, only underlines their talent.
Until next time, stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold. See you soonish.
