...I DVRed this from PBS last week and watched it tonight.
It is a phenomenal film documenting the rise of the Beatles, their concerts and albums. Some terrific music.
...we all wanted to be the Beatles. After watching the documentary, I'm kind of glad we weren't. The behind the scenes showed it wasn't all fun and games.

I was reminded how The Beatles released a record every 6 months while maintaining a grueling tour schedule. Amazing - especially considering the historical significance and quality of those releases.
I came across that Beatles show on PBS. It was great but I was wondering if there was another part to it or does it end with the last day of touring.It seems like there could be a lot more info. Is there more to follow?...Mark Korda
Mark.Korda, during its' brief theatrical release, "Eight Day A Week" included the compleat first Shea Stadium concert. Which, unfortunately, wasn't included in dvd release. That's what's missing! 73s-n-Happy Holidaze para Sactown
I have to agree with you. I'm stuck inside recuperating and happened to DVR the same show that was aired during the local PBS pledge drive. Having lived through that era of hysteria, it was lot of fun to see the young girls screaming so loud that the PA systems were overwhelmed and drowned out. They were just a bit too early for the "More Power!" era.
...seeing those wimpy amps and speakers they had on stage, no wonder the screaming girls drowned them out.
But the nice thing about the film was seeing them perform songs I had never seen them do before.
Afterwards, it was easy to see why they quit touring.
