On Saturday 22 April Record Store Day Join us with The British Record Shop Archive for a special free screening on the 50th Anniversary year of Brian Epstein's death.
Introduced by the director and Arena series editor, Anthony Wall.
This film is from Arena the BBC's multi award-winning arts strand. Founded in 1975, Arena continues to produce gold standard documentaries for the BBC.
A two-part film examining the turbulent life and career of The Beatles manager Brian Epstein.
Gay when homosexuality was illegal, a gambler, shopkeeper and failed actor, he was also a pop king with a Midas touch who, in the 1960s, was as well known as the band he managed.
During the interval and after the film the one and only DJ Lord Anthony will be spinning (in honor of Brian Epstein); Beatles B-sides, Bootlegs, Bonkers covers and rarities. All on vinyl – prepare to twist & shout!
In 2017 the BBC is marking 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality. The BBC is crowdsourcing photos, memories, film footage, historic documents, club flyers, outfits, protest banners, posters, music, diary entries and much more to help tell the story of LGBT+ life in Britain from 1967 - 2016. Do you have photos of Soho of yesteryear? Footage of past Prides?
Memorabilia from past Soho clubs, pubs or cabarets? We will be making an interactive crowd sourced archive of LGBT+ life and a BBC television series based around some of the stories, objects and memories contributed. Is there something that has defined your life as an LGBT+ person over the last 50 years? Get in touch and let us know what you have at: firstname.lastname@example.org
