"I must admit, I baught this DVD due to the two good reviews it had on this site. I intended to use this DVD to help teach the Beatles in a music appreciation class. This is a horrible documentary. The production qualities are very poor, it is long and drawn out, and there is clearly some "screaming girls" sounds dubbed on it. I would not recommend this to any one except perhaps some die-hard Beatles fans who want to see some new footage."

"There are plenty of better DVD's about the Beatles out there. Save your money for one of those."

"I am an inveterate Beatles' fan and I admit I enjoyed this. There was some fresh film footage, but very little in the way of new material.
Still, it is a good "starter" film for people just becoming aware of the Beatles and their meteoric influence and indelible stamp on culture. I would far recommend the Beatles' Anthology over this one."

"I am a huge Beatles fan, and since nobody else has reviewed this dvd yet, I figured that I would. It is put together nicely and includes some new footage as far as I can tell, but then again I don't already own every Beatles' dvd out there. Unlike some dvds which just include a bunch of clips with no explanations, this documentary gives a brief history of the Beatles so that the footage makes sense for a beginner. There are also some good shots of John and Yoko's bed-in for peace that I hadn't seen before on some of their other dvds. Although the Beatles Anthology is by far the best set out there, this one is worth the money if you don't have $50 to spend on the Anthology dvds."
