The carefully curated collection of surviving transcripts of the Beatles' appearances on BBC Radio and Television from 1932 to 1970, featuring commentary from author and Beatles expert Kevin Howlett and rare photographs and memorabilia from the BBC.
The year 2013 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the release of The Beatles' first album, Please, Please me. To celebrate this event with material that has never been in print or has not repeatedly resurfaced is a challenge. But a great deal of both - namely, never-before-seen BBC transcripts, historical documents, and rare photos - will be the main thrust of the book, The Beatles at the BBC. Not since The Beatles' Anthology of 2000 has a work of this magnitude been offered. (hb)
