Anthology on DVD encompasses over 11 hours of footage chronicling the Beatles'
career from the beginnings of the band to their eventual breakup. The Anthology offers
recent interviews with Paul, Ringo and the late George Harrison. Previously
broadcast as a miniseries and produced by Neil Aspinall, the Anthology serves
as a quintessential documentary of the Beatles by the Beatles. Comprised of
footage taken from interviews, performances, studio sessions, feature films and
home movies, the collection gives viewers a comprehensive and revealing history
of the band and leaves little undisclosed. Also included are 81 minutes
of rare and unseen special features.
The box set consists of five DVDs and
is arranged chronologically with the first installment covering childhood
recollections of the band members and the birth of the Beatles along with their
rise to fame. Number two includes the Beatles arrival in America and the making
of "Help." The third disc examines the years 1965 & 1966 plus
their last concert in San Francisco on August 19 of 1966. Explored next is
the "Psychedelic Era" with George's recollections of the
"Magical Mystery Tour" and the establishment of Apple Records along
with Abbey Road and John's and Paul's marriages. The fifth DVD offers an
insightful look into the production of the anthology with unreleased footage
recounting experiences of the past.
As a retrospective documenting the most
beloved and influential band in recent history, The Beatles Anthology DVD will
endure as the best.
