This is a fun "tour" of Beatle related places in England with a tour guide who was personally there during the height of Beatlemania. For anyone who has every wanted to go on one of the great Beatle tours in London and/or Liverpool but can't afford to go to England or physically would not be able to do all that walking, this is especially nice.
Avoid this garbage

"Its a 1 star rating only because I couldn't give it zero stars. A horrible home-made video with extremely low production values. I have the VHS version - recorded in EP mode! - and I'd say the signal to noise ratio is about 1:1. The video has nothing for a Beatle fan of any type. Dull, insipid yarns from the one-time Beatles limo driver. You have been warned - AVOID THIS PRODUCT!"
Pretty Darn Good

"3 1/3 for sure. I'll tell you what, for the insider it is a very interesting Video, He tells lots of stories of The Beatles, Mal Evans & Neil Aspinal themselves, Maybe he was trying to make a buck, But I would pay to sit and listen to a road manager tell their stories as well as I paid this bloke, tell his, which were pretty good
Like the story where he didn't strap down a Banjo correctly and John says if you find the banjo you'll get a bonus or when a police man thought Alf Bicknell stole The Beatles car and Alf had John Lennon step out of the car and the policeman just walked away dumbfounded & many more. I think it was interesting for those who like the inside story's, Yes no real Beatles music but it's a great videoBut don't take my word for it, YOU GOTTA SEE IT.Chewy"
Kind of OK

"This DVD is OK in the information dept. Lots of re-hashing of the age-old Beatle tail, but this fellow was there for a chunk of it all. Drove them around, brought them their dinner, runner- go-fer, drove them up to met Elvis. On the sideline but a fairly interesting side and your glad he survived it, some didn't. His tour of Liverpool is quaint and silly but it's the most I've seen of the place in one sitting. This DVD also obviously has a fairly large endorsement by McCartney. He's let Alf use segments of his solo music as background as well as snippets from what looks like early 90's live footage. Pretty nice of Paul helping out his old driver. I would recommend this to the more hardcore fans to add to your library."
