Move over, Ms L!

Hi all, wondering why you are looking at this jumbled up page? This is due to the fact that Facebook didn't like our url since it starts with wog, so we have been forced to move the blog. This was some time ago, and we have placed a script which would automatically send you to our new location. Obviously, this hasn't worked for all of you, since we have just finished moderating some of your comments which appeared on this site recently, and not on our new (and improved!) site. So what we're saying is head on over to our new site, and update your bookmarks!

Rare Beatles footage emerges etc

BBC News report that pop memorabilia collector Mark Hayward came across rare footage of the Beatles at an auction in the late 1990s. It shows the band performing in Blackpool in August 1963 as Beatlemania began to kick in.

Now Mark Hayward is releasing the footage to the public for the first time, as part of his forthcoming book and DVD, "The Beatles, On Camera, Off Guard 1963-1969".

You can find out more about this story on Inside Out South East, tonight at 7.30pm on BBC1 or on BBC iPlayer.
Watch some of the footage on BBC's site.


Meanwhile, you can be part of the ballot to get tickets for Paul McCartney's concert (he's only one of many acts) in Royal Albert Hall on November 12th if you click here (offer open only until tomorrow at 12 standard British time, limited to two tickets per household, and it's going to cost you between £50-£100 a ticket if you win.) The performance will also be televised.


And if you're in Philadelphia, make sure you go and see "Let It Be" Friday, October 23 at 8:00 pm over at the Moore College of Art & Design at 20th & Race Streets.
Presented by Secret Cinema, admission is only $7.00, and as their slogan is "all secret cinema presentations are shown in 16mm film on a giant screen (not video...not ever!)", you should get a good experience. At their web site, they claim that what they are showing is "archival, dye-transfer Technicolor print" and "projected from real film on the big screen". You can read all about the Let It Be movie in this post.
