It looks like some new and previously unseen Beatles’ film footage has surfaced, and of course the BBC is there to share it with you all.
- Check out the video here from the BBC.
I would also check out this GREAT fan page, Mystery Tour Memories. It talks all things Magical Mystery Tour, and collects some previously unseen photos and footage as well. It looks quite impressive.
According to the Arthouse Pictures website, the project originated in 2001 by writer Keith Gray for what was planned as a book about the making of the film. After meeting with producer David Lambert in 2007, the project turned into a proposed TV documentary. Production was to begin in September of that year with the first interviews done with musician Spencer Davis, former UK secretary of the official Beatles Fan Club Freda Kelly and Mike McCartney, Paul’s brother.
In addition, filming was completed in Newquay, Cornwall and Trent with stories from eyewitnesses, in Totnes, Devon, interviewing former Beatles tour manager Tony Bramwell and in London interviewing Victor Spinetti.
