A compilation of found footage featuring music, interviews, and stories of The Beatles' 250 concerts from 1963 to 1966.
Director Ron Howard takes a look back at the first part of the Beatles career (1962-1966) when they were still a touring band, from their early performances in Europe in 1963 to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966. Using rare, exclusive and archival footage, as well as interviews, it explores how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this phenomenon; their inner workings, how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together.
