Rare Beatles footage emerges


Pop memorabilia collector Mark Hayward came across rare footage of the Beatles at an auction in the late 1990s. It shows the band performing in Blackpool in August 1963 as Beatlemania began to kick in.

Now Mark Hayward is releasing the footage to the public for the first time, as part of his forthcoming book and DVD, "The Beatles, On Camera, Off Guard 1963-1969".
