A new documentary film project is being put together that seeks to gather rare and unseen footage and photos from The Beatles' concert performances to help tell the story of fans' unbridled obsession with the rock icons. The Beatles Live! Project is authorized by the group's Apple Corps company, and is utilizing a variety of experts, collectors, journalists, media groups and other sources to help gather material for the movie. Research for the documentary is expected to continue until the end of the year.
The film's producers also are asking people who attended Beatles concerts to share their recollections, as well as photos and recordings they may have from the performances. A website has been launched, TheBeatlesLiveProject.com, where you can upload your Beatlemania-related media or stories.
