The Beeb's Lost Beatles Tapes


The Beeb's Lost Beatles Tapes

"The Beeb's Lost Beatles Tapes" was a music documentary series presented by Richard Skinner, comprising 14 half-hour episodes, broadcast on BBC Radio 1 between October 1 and December 31 1988. Each episode was broadcast on Saturday evening with a repeat on the following Monday.

The series presented rarely-broadcast and unreleased BBC recordings of The Beatles made between 1963 and 1968. This included sessions from "Saturday Club", "Easy Beat" and "Pop Go the Beatles". As well as the songs the programme included much of the Beatles' chat and interview material from the various programmes, much of it involving Brian Matthew and Kenny Everett. There are also contemporary interviews with people who were involved in the original programmes.

The programme title is something of a misnomer, since the tapes were not lost but simply shelved for many years.

Much of the session material featured on the programme, including some of the Beatles' chat, was finally given an official release on "Live at the BBC" in 1994.
