From amusing adventures in Hamburg to the arrival of manager Brian Epstein and record producer George Martin. Then Ringo Starr joins the group; fame and screaming fans; the famous tour to the USA; the making of the albums, key hit songs and early films. then the later years, with the gigantic Sgt Pepper album, their visit to India, the making of Magical Mystery Tour.
