THE SURVIVING BEATLES ARE TOGETHER AGAIN, AND SO IS BEATLEMANIA.
LEAD: THE BEATLES, OF COURSE, SPEARHEADED THE BRITISH INVASION THAT CREATED A SOUNDTRACK FOR A GENERATION. THEN, JOHN, PAUL, GEORGE AND RINGO WENT SOLO. FANS HAD HOPED FOR A REUNION UNTIL JOHN LENNON WAS CUT DOWN BY A KILLER'S BULLET. THE REMAINING BEATLES RESISTED A REUNION UNTIL NOW. REPORTER CARY BERGLUND LOOKS AT THE NEW MUSIC FROM THE BEATLES... SCRIPT: (NAT SND) THERE HAS BEEN NOTHING ELSE BEFORE OR SINCE, THAT COMPARES TO THE BEATLES INVASION OF THE U.S. THE YEAR WAS 1964 AND BEATLEMANIA WAS A WAY OF LIFE FOR A SCREAMING, CRYING, DANCING, SINGING BUYING GENERATION OF NEW FOUND FANS. THAT WAS THEN, THIS IS NOW. (NAT SND) IT'S BEEN DECADES. JOHN IS DEAD. AND NOW FINALLY A REUNION. (SOT) (NAT SND) "FREE AS A BIRD" IS A MUCH BALLYHOOED NEW SINGLE MARRYING NEVER BEFORE HEARD TAPES OF JOHN LENNON WITH PRESENT DAY COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS FROM GEORGE, PAUL AND RINGO. (SOT) THE GUYS WHO RESISTED FOR SO LONG FINALLY GAVE IN WITH A VENGENCE. NEW SONGS, A NEW DOCUMENTARY, NEW ALBUM. (SOT) AND NOW THAT THEY'VE DONE IT, IT HAS BEEN 1964 ALL OVER AGAIN. MAGAZINE COVERS, (NAT SND) AND SOMETHING NEW, CD-ROM PRESS KITS. IS IT WORKING? YOU BET IT IS. (SOT) CAN A NEW GENERATION OR TWO BE CONVINCED TO CARE? YES THEY CAN. (SOT) DID THEY WAIT TOO LONG AND DELIVER TOO LITTLE? THE WORD IS THE WAIT WAS WORTH IT. THE NEW STUFF IS MAGNIFICENT. AND PEOPLE STILL CARE. (SOT) (MOS) (MOS) (MOS) BY NOVEMBER TWENTIETH, WE WILL KNOW IF LEGENDS CAN COME BACK FROM THE DEAD AND BECOME LEGENDS AGAIN. IN HOLLYWOOD, CARY BERGLUND.
