Lost Beatles interview to air after 44 years
LONDON, England (AP) — The British Broadcasting Corp. will air a long-lost Beatles interview featuring John Lennon and Paul McCartney talking about the day they met and their songwriting partnership.
A 1964 John Lennon and Paul McCartney interview was discovered in a London garage.
The precious film sat forgotten for 44 years in a garage in south London until film fan Richard Jeffs realized a piece of pop history was contained inside.
Experts were surprised to find the audio portion still usable for radio broadcast.
The nine-minute interview was recorded at the Scottish Television studios in April 1964 during the early days of Beatlemania. The interview with the two Beatles will be broadcast for the first time on BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday and repeated later this week.
On the tape, Lennon tells how he was playing with a skiffle band outside Liverpool when McCartney introduced himself.
