Beatles newsreels let loose

British Movietone/Associated Press have launched their own YouTube channel and are uploading new footage daily. For Beatles buffs, here's a query link to the channel's Beatles related films. Beatles film collectors are already reporting a few new upgrades to what's been circulating earlier. Here's a sample film:

Just as was the issue with the Pathe newsreels (which were made available on YouTube from April 2014), the curators of the archives have not been very careful about speed issues when uploading, as a number of the films uploaded are not appearing at their proper speeds. Beatles amateur film restorers no doubt will step in and correct this to provide fellow collectors with more accurate representations of the films.
