BEATLES MANAGER BRIAN EPSTEIN SPEAKS ABOUT HIS LIFE
CHANNEL | Regional Radio
FIRST BROADCAST | 23 March 1963
DURATION | 28 minutes 16 seconds
Brian Epstein talks openly about his early ambitions to be an actor, his preference for classical music and his fondness for all his clients. We also hear about his qualities as a manager, plans for the first Beatles film and how The Searchers are one of the most interesting new bands around.
DID YOU KNOW?
Journalist and seasoned broadcaster Bill Grundy was the first person to present The Beatles to television audiences when he introduced their small-screen debut on Granada TV on 17 October, 1962. An appearance by fledgeling punk act The Sex Pistols on the live daytime programme Today in 1976 effectively damaged Bill Grundy's career beyond repair. When Steve Jones and Johnny Rotten swore during their interview, the avuncular Grundy encouraged them to continue, as if to shame them into behaving. Viewers, however, felt that he'd prompted them to swear more. Though he continued to present other programmes, his career never recovered from the 'scandal'.

I understand how you feel as I wish I can view it, too. I posted it in case anyone outside of the US is about to view it and would give us some feedback on it. Hopefuly, the BBC would eventually make the video accessible for the viewers to see in other countries.
Lets hope someone in the U.K. uploads it to Youtube, or another site where it's accessible. Twenty-eight minutes of Brian talking makes your mouth water! I always say it'll be great when the movie is released, because interviews such as these will come out of the woodwork.
