2012 10 03 - BBCR2 - A Year In The Life: Beatles 1962

A Year In The Life: Beatles '62 narrates the pivotal breakthrough 
year for the newly mop-topped Liverpool beat combo via the 
recollections of those who knew and worked alongside them in 
An oral history narrated by Liverpool contemporary Roger McGough
A Year In The Life recounts a familiar tale via the less-familiar
 recollections of those who were vital to The Beatles development in 1962.
The programme will range from their unsuccessful January 
1st audition for Decca records through to the recording 
and release of their breakthrough hit 'Love Me Do'.
A Year In the Life will also reflect upon their crowning in the 
Merseybeat newspaper as the leading Liverpool group, their 
first radio broadcasts at the BBC's Manchester studios, the death 
of original bassist Stu Sutcliffe, their return to Hamburg's Star Club, 
 the ousting of drummer Pete Best.
Contributors include Bill Harry(the editor of Merseybeat), Klaus 
Voorman (their close friend from Hamburg & the artist responsible 
for Revolver's striking sleeve) Pete Best (their original drummer) 
Joe Brown & Mike Berry (who shared bills with the group 
shortly before their national fame) Andy White (the studio session 
drummer who played on 'Love Me Do') and publicist Tony Calder 
(who promoted their first single).
