To trumpet the 50th anniversary of the Beatles releasing their first hit single, RT’s own Macca, Stuart Maconie, looks back at the day music changed for ever. His programme discovers how Liverpool, despite spiralling unemployment and the worst slums in Europe, ignited a revolution, and reflects on a world where Brian Epstein had to hide being gay for fear of criminal prosecution.


In a programme first shown in 2012, Stuart Maconie presents a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles' first hit single Love Me Do. The presenter meets people who knew the Fab Four back in the day, as he explores the socio-economic situation of Liverpool in the 1960s, the reason for the city becoming the hub of a thriving pop culture and how much things have changed since then.
