Abbey Road Film

A lyrical portrait of one of London’s most peculiar tourist attractions - a humble pedestrian crossing in 
St John’s Wood. But this isn’t any ordinary piece of street furniture, a 10 minute photo session back in the 
summer of 1969 saw to that. A couple of weeks after Neil Armstrong took his giant leap, the Beatles took 
a few short steps across Abbey Road and the rest is history.
Roughly timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first recording session at Abbey Road Studios, this quirky short film explores a tiny part of London that is, in the words of narrator Roger McGough, suffused with a sort of magic.
Wogblog had a small part in the making of this film, I'm proud to say.

Sounds cool. There is talk that Tony Palmer's documentary All You Need Is Love is getting a DVD release in July this year.

It's the Beatles episode from his huge series of documentaries from the mid 70's
