A Hard Day's Night DVD edition (UK)

Now also available on DVD from Second Sight Films
The DVD version of the restored and remastered "A Hard Day's Night" is now available as an Amazon UK preorder, to be shipped July 21st. You may view the details and order the DVD here.
Even though it all seems too much to fit on a single disc, the DVD is advertised to include all the bonus material from the UK Blu-ray:
  • 'In Their Own Voices' - a new piece combining 1964 interviews with The Beatles with behind-the-scenes footage and photos
  • 'You Can't Do That: The Making of A Hard Day's Night' - a documentary by producer Walter Shenson including an outtake performance by The Beatles
  • 'Things They Said Today', a documentary about the film featuring director Richard Lester music producer George Martin, a screenwriter Alun Owen and cinematographer Gilbert Taylor
  • 'Picturewise' - a new piece about Richard Lester's early work featuring a new audio interview with the director
  • 'Anatomy of a Style' - a new piece on Richard Lester's methods
  • New interview with author Mark Lewisohn
  • Audio commentary with cast and crew
  • New 50th Anniversary trailer
