I've just come across this on LJ. I'm clueless as to how to get YouTube vids to 'embed' but hopefully I will find out soon as I've posted a techy request to UTD. I know you've told me before imaof4 but I've forgotten how to do it!
ETA:- Was using the 'embed' text instead of the direct link. Never mind.
I remember seeing this when it was aired... really ought to get it as I don't actually own any Beatles music whatsoever, despite liking everything I've ever heard, pretty much... well Christmas is coming up (although I'm hoping someone will get me the 'Rumpole' box set...) ;D
This would raise my interest on two veins. Thank you Phyllis for sharing!!
Not being a particular audiophile - don't know if I really need or want a re-mastered red and blue albums. And yes, I've all the LP's and CD's. Of the entire Beatles' collection. Lennon's solo albums (which, unfortunately, have Yoko vocals... *my ears bleed* McCartney and Wings.

I know it was from 2007 - which is why I removed it (correcting my mistake), sorry if I confused you. I do tend to edit my posts furiously in the minutes after posting - I always find some mistake in what I've written, but usually nothing as grave as today. I try not to edit after other people have replied, though. Except for minor things like mistakes in spelling or links etc.
Does anyone know if John attended this year's premiere for Deathly Hallows (Part I)? Haven't seen a vid or photo. Understandably, attention has been focused on the Potter performers.
Has anyone seen the film?
Apparently according to a photo on Twitter, he was on the guest list but don't think he went - there haven't been any photos. He had just started filming Exile in Manchester so that would be a good excuse not to go!
Excuses, excuses! ;D *work-a-day lad* He'll probably more than be able to catch up with Part II, whenever that comes out.
And the poor hand ... John had said he was lucky to have walked away from the crash with only an injury to his wrist... *shudder* I for one was grateful for not learning of any details and that all was well.
I went to see it with the familly at 9.30 last Sunday morning. Those were the only tickets we could get and they were starting it every half an hour in various screens!
I can't begin to say how good it is and I'll have to stop myself or I'll go on forever. I'm very cynical about Warner Brothers and the Harry Potter brand, but this is the HP film I've been waiting for. The direction and cinematography are sheer genius. The feeling of danger and suspense is maintained throughout the whole film and the effects are perfecly understated. It's not so much scary, although it does have it's scary moments, as very sad in places. My son was in tears near the end. However, I have to say that I thought the film was very intelligently directed with a superb awareness that lots of young children will be watching and a definite consideration of just the right level to pitch the scary and sad moments. They will have a very hard task to out do themselves for the second part next year. It didn't feel spun out which is all I've moaned about since I heard the last part would be made into two films. I could have watched for longer and actually felt sad when it ended. All three leads were great and there were lots of cameos from actors that have been in it previously. It's a shame that we couldn't have seen more of them. Bill Nighy plays the Minister for Magic (all too breifly for me). Must be going soft.
It's a shame that JS didn't attend as pics of him in London with his family would have been brilliant.
Can't wait to see the vids when I get home as I'm at work at the mo.
