2012 10 13 - BBCWS - The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour



The television film called Magical Mystery Tour was devised, 
written and directed by The Beatles. It has a significant place
 in the history of The Beatles - not least, because it was viewed 
by many as the group's first failure.

Paul Gambaccini presents a programme revealing the story behind the 
making of Magical Mystery Tour. The documentary also examines the 
group's activities during 1967 before they spent most of the final four 
months working on Magical Mystery Tour.

It was a momentous year. In February, The Beatles issued the single Penny 
Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever, accompanied by two adventurous and 
surreal promotional films for those songs. On 1 June, their LP Sgt. Pepper's 
Lonely Hearts Club Band was released, which instantly received critical 
acclaim and huge sales. They performed All You Need Is Love on the first 
global TV show linking five continents by satellite.

They first met the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the last week of August 1967. 
While learning about Transcendental Meditation with him in North Wales, they 
received the shocking news of the sudden death of their manager Brian Epstein. 
Two weeks later they began filming Magical Mystery Tour.

The programme features new interviews with Paul McCartney and 
Ringo Starr. John Lennon and George Harrison are represented 
by rare archive interviews recorded during the shooting and editing 
of the film in September and October 1967. Film directors Peter Fonda, 
Terry Gilliam and Martin Scorsese discuss Magical Mystery Tour and 
there are comments from many of those who worked on or 
participated in the film.
