BRIAN EPSTEIN TALKS ABOUT MANAGING THE BEATLES, CILLA BLACK AND OTHER ARTSTS.
CHANNEL | Home Service
FIRST BROADCAST | c 1964
DURATION | 15 minutes 31 seconds
In this excerpt from a programme on Brian Epstein and his management company NEMS Enterprises, a rather disapproving presenter interviews Epstein and some of the acts he manages. The artists interviewed include Gerry Marsden and Cilla Black, who comment on Epstein's judgement and professionalism.
DID YOU KNOW?
Brian Epstein started out in the pop industry by selling records from his family's shop, North End Music Stores (NEMS) in Great Charlotte Street, Liverpool. After having great success with that outlet, Epstein opened another one at 12-14 Whitechapel.

It isn't a video, it's a radio news report. The part of it that's the Brian interview is a re-use of a video interview that I've already seen on YouTube.
It's an interesting listen, though, as it gives a good idea about the 1964 context and how people saw the Beatles. They interview Maureen Cleave about Brian's relationship with the Beatles and that is something that I hadn't heard before.

Thank you Emily for telling us. I am glad you come by here. So part of it is on YouTube? If it is, it may already be posted somewhere around this forum. Hopefully, more interviews with Brian would be discovered and revealed so the public would learn more about this great man.
