"We are going magical now, folks."











Here are some articles and photos relating to The Beatles' television production, Magical Mystery Tour, which I think was brilliant and way ahead of its time for television in 1967. MMT is a psychedelic dadaist masterpiece, which flew directly over the heads of the Boxing Day viewers who were probably expecting a more straight-forward Christmas special. And then there was the problem of it airing in black and white...

I'm sure many fans, such as myself, would love a deluxe DVD edition with at least some of the almost 10 hours of cut footage included as a bonus. I'd especially love to see the Spencer Davis Group segment.
