In the late 50s, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Richard Starkey were just four Liverpudlian teenagers who decided to play music. With no formal training and no ability to read or write music, they tried to emulate their American rock heroes. Within a few years, they would change music history (and the world) forever. In this filmed lecture, musicologist Scott Freiman traces the birth of the Beatles from their days as the Quarrymen to their first visit to EMI Studios and the recording of “Love Me Do.”

When the Beatles' spectacular feature Yellow Submarine debuted in 1968, it was instantly recognizable as a landmark film that merged still-wondrous visual splendour with a fantasy-adventure tale filled with peace, love, and hope. Better still is the music itself—the incredible animation is combined with a brilliant soundtrack of Beatles songs including "Eleanor Rigby," "When I'm 64," "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," and "All You Need Is Love."
