    At bloody last! Perhaps they will release Let It Be sometime before their original fan base is dead and buried!

    I thought in another thread it said that no one ever kept a master copy as the ratings for it at the time were so bad.

    It will be interesting to see what the picture quality is like.

    The clips from the film shown in The Beatles Anthology DVD release look excellent as do the clips on the promo video for the BD release, so fingers crossed for this one.

    yeah im surprised this is being released so close to yellow submarine, which is excellent...im hoping we will see let it be sometime soon as well, also wouldnt mind blurays versions of the anthology and upgrades of help and a hard days night while we at it!...also wouldnt ind the entire beatles boxset in high resolution, which they should have done, on the remastered beatles boxset.

    i did notice on the listings for content on magical mystery tour they havent done a feature on i am the walrus which seems like an opportunity lost!

    im currently enjoying the mathew street festival, with plenty of tribute bands and music.

    me being a massive beatles fan, as if you couldnt tell!

    Just been watching the showing of this which was on BBC HD yesterday.

    Not bad and I see at the end it was restored from 16mm film to 4k

    If I had known they were showing the complete feature I would have posted before rather than after the showing.

    £44 for something that was shown on BBC HD on saturday? No thanks!
    OK you get a book and a vinyl EP thrown in. But even so...

    ive recorded this from the arena specials at the weekend im a massive beatle fan, but i find magical mystery tour nearly unbearable to watch, other than the music sequences, even taken into context of the time and what they were trying to do. i was excited, but then when i watched it again it was very difficult, so ive decided to pass on this now.

    I would indeed guess that is the same program that you get on the BD box set?

    And the main feature which was in 4:3 pillar box.

    Who amongst you saw this live, first time around?

    I watched it round my Grandparents on boxing day. We were all Beatles fans - as almost everyone was then regardless of age - but I remember much scratching of heads by the end of it. What was all that about? :)

    If I recall it was the first program to be shown on the BBC and ITV and I think at the same time.

    And yes, I remember watching then...

    The broadcast was DNRd to an inch of its life. I'm hoping the Blu-ray fairs better
