Beatles footage found

(Tuesday November 07, 2006 11:27 AM)

Footage from the last ever gig by The Beatles is to be screened on British TV this month, it has been confirmed.

The group played their final ever official concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in August 29, 1966, and documentary maker Barry Hood shot some of the show.

His footage includes the band's road crew setting-up and fans arriving for the landmark concert and suggests their touring was "chaotic and amateurish".

Hood explained: "There was a row between the equipment manager and the field manager who was frightened that the equipment van was going to ruin the baseball pitch."

Speaking about the broadcast, a spokesman for the BBC commented: "This is the first time it has been shown. It shows how The Beatles' tours were quite amateurish and chaotic."
