A clip from The Beatles' 1967 film - Magical Mystery Tour. Fully restored to the highest technical standard with a remixed soundtrack, Magical Mystery Tour comes out of the shadows and on to the screen.
By the end of 1967, The Beatles had achieved a creativity unprecedented in popular music. Their triumphant summer release, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, was both avant garde and an instant hit. It went straight to No.1 in June and remained there for the rest of the year.
They immersed themselves in the fiercely radical art of the new counter culture and decided to make a film on their own terms, not as pop stars but as artists. Roll up Roll Up for the Mystery Tour!
