Why Don’t We Do It in the Road?

Once upon a time in the summer of ‘69 four chaps from Liverpool took a few short steps across Abbey Road in London.  The rest is history – a moment in time and one of the most iconic photographs of The Beatles captured. Their road crossing was to be endlessly repeated by host after host of adoring fans.

That famous pedestrian crossing is given its own short documentary here.  Lyrical and charming it was created to (roughly) mark the fiftieth anniversary of when the Beatles first recorded at Abbey Road studios.  To cap it all it is narrated by one of my favorite poets of all time, Roger McGough. A lovely way to spend five minutes.
