SOUNDBITE: (English), Bruce Spizer, Beatles Historian and Author: "So by the time the Beatles arrive in America, we've had saturation coverage and that's why we have thousands of teenagers at the airport. It wasn't a coincidence, the radio stations got on the air and said the Beatles will be arriving at 1:20, Pan-Am airlines flight 101 international arrivals JFK airport and the kids were out there in force playing hooky (truant) on a Friday, mind you, and they were there. And then when the Ed Sullivan show came on 73 million people tuned in because on that friday the major networks reported on the Beatles arrival at the airport." VNR File New York, February 1964 3.

The Beatles were there for 40 years and to have that kind of staying power is extraordinary I don't think anybody else has done it." VNR File New York, February 1964 7. Various Beatles outside the Plaza hotel in New York, fans fainting STORYLINE: Standing outside the Plaza Hotel in 1964, a young girl playing hooky from school hoisted a handwritten sign: "Elvis is dead. Long live the Beatles." Forty years later, John and George are dead, too - but Beatlemania endures. The 40th anniversary of the Beatles' arrival in America will be celebrated on February 9, with fans of all ages preparing a variety of tributes. Organisers held a Manhattan news conference to promote the events marking the famed February 9, 1964, appearance by the Fabulous Four on "The Ed Sullivan Show." An estimated 73 million Americans tuned in to see the boys from Liverpool in their U.S. debut. Judging from the number of anniversary tributes, many of them still care deeply about the band that split up more than three decades ago after becoming the most popular group in the world. Among the 40th anniversary events were the DVD release of the Beatles' four Sullivan appearances, featuring 11 songs from rarely seen performances; retrospectives at the Smithsonian Gallery, the American Film Institute, and the Museum of Television and Radio; and a special screening of "A Hard Day's Night" at Lincoln Center. The news conference featured a somewhat unlikely early Beatles booster: columnist Dr. Joyce Brothers, who had predicted their British success would translate o this side of the Atlantic. Brothers called teen idol Britney Spears "A blip on the horizon" in comparison with the Beatles. Also present on the news conference was author and Beatles historian Bruce Spizer who is pushing his new book "The Beatles are Coming." In the book, released Friday, Spizer lends his insight into what exactly helped propel the Beatles to the top here of American music charts and even pop culture. Meanwhile in Washington, the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History opened Friday "The Beatles! Backstage and Behind the Scenes," a photo exhibit that features more than 80 never-before-published black-and-white images from US network CBS archives and Life photographer Bill Eppridge.

No re-use/re-sale of UK POOL performance footage after 21st December 99 FEED: SCRIPT: XFA Story: Paul McCartney Location: Liverpool Date: 14.12.99 SIR PAUL McCARTNEY has once again taken to the stage at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool, for the first time since 1963. The tiny underground club was a favourite with THE BEATLES the Fab Four played their first concert there in 1961, were spotted there by BRIAN EPSTIEN, and went on to play 281 concerts there. The 300 adoring fans who filled the tiny underground club were picked through a global raffle. They were the lucky ones demand to see the one time singer, guitarist and song writer with The Beatles was staggering. Many fans who hadn't managed to get in still travelled thousands of miles to be in Liverpool on Tuesday night. Up to 15thousand saw the concert on a giant video screen, braving the cold in Liverpool's Chavasse Park, and a global audience of millions will be able to see it on the Internet. Inside, fans cheered McCartney as he walked onto the tiny stage and performed his first song. McCartney played material from his newest album, "Run Devil Run," as well as other songs from the likes of Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, and Little Richard. McCartney first played the Cavern Club back in 1958 as part of The Quarrymen, forerunners to The Beatles, a group that also included both John Lennon and George Harrison. The Beatles later played lunchtime shows at the venue the first in February 1961. Their total fee was five pounds sterling (8 US dollars). Despite the fact that The Beatles split up in 1970, their loyal fanbase has, if anything, increased. The original Cavern was located in the basement of a building that was bulldozed in 1973, filling the club with rubble. A new club of the same name opened nearby later that year, but it failed and its name was changed. In 1982, spurred by the fatal shooting of John Lennon in 1980, the city of Liverpool excavated the basement of the original site of the club. The building's original bricks were either sold off for charity or used in the reconstruction of a larger Cavern Club on the same site as the original venue. The Beatles, who hold the record for the most successful group ever, have sold an estimated one (b) billion records and audio tapes, and their popularity shows no sign of waning.

Various of Staten Island University Hospital CANCER KILLS GEORGE HARRISON George Harrison, the Beatles' lead guitarist and spiritual explorer who added both rock 'n' roll flash and a touch of the mystic to the band's timeless magic, has died. He was 58. Harrison died at 1330 local time (2130 GMT) on Thursday at a friend's Los Angeles home following a battle with cancer, longtime friend Gavin de Becker told The Associated Press late on Thursday. "He died with one thought in mind - love one another," De Becker said. He added that Harrison's wife, Olivia Harrison, and son Dhani, 24, were with him when he died. With Harrison's death, there remain two surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. John Lennon was shot to death by a deranged fan in 1980. In 1998, when Harrison disclosed that he had been treated for throat cancer, he said: "It reminds you that anything can happen." The following year, he survived an attack by an intruder who stabbed him several times. Harrison shot to fame in the early sixties with the group which became one of the world's most famous bands. Once on every television screen and in every newspaper during Beatlemania, Harrison largely ducked out of the public eye in later years. Here he is seen at a memorial service for Linda McCartney in London in June 1998. Just a few weeks later, he revealed that he had been battling against throat cancer since the summer before. Linda McCartney - wife of Harrison's fellow ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney - died of breast cancer in May 1998. After the Beatles broke up, Harrison had several solo hits - but it is for his part in the legendary group that he will be remembered. Beatlemania was a phenomenon the world had not experienced before. The Fab Four, as they came to be known, played sell out concerts to fans who could barely contain their hysteria. The Beatles broke up in 1970 amid bitter recriminations. But Beatle fans continued to buy the records and Beatlemania was passed down through the generations. Despite Lennon's death, the flame was rekindled in November 1995, when Harrison, McCartney and Starr released a new song featuring the voice of John Lennon. Sales of 'The Beatles Anthology', the album on which the song was included, showed the passion for the singers had not disappeared. In an interview in November 1995, Harrison joked about the relaunch. The singer and guitarist said he had got cancer from smoking - explaining he quit the habit many years ago, then started again before finally giving up in 1997. In January 1997, he went to an American clinic for tests and was told the cancer had not returned. He returned to the clinic in May the same year for further tests and was given the all-clear. He said that the battle had made him aware of the fragility of human existence. In late 1999, the former Beatle faced another life threatening situation when he was almost killed by an armed intruder at his home In Henley on Thames. His wife Olivia struck the knife-wielding attacker over the head with a poker and table lamp almost certainly saving him. In early 2001, the cancer seemed to have returned and Harrison had a cancerous infection removed from his lung at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. In July that same year, he released a statement asking fans not to worry about reports that he was still battling cancer. But not long after, he was treated at a Swiss clinic for a brain tumour. As the fight against cancer grew more serious, the former Beatle travelled to New York for treatment. But despite undergoing experimental radiosurgery, he lost his long battle with the disease, dying on Thursday..

Three hundred tickets to the concert were raffled across the globe and those adoring Beatles fans lucky enough to have been selected for this exclusive event will fill the dark underground club in Liverpool on Tuesday night. While McCartney hasn't played there since 1963, he made a total of 281 appearances at the club while under the management of their late manager and confidante Brian Epstein. The concert on Tuesday will mark the first time that McCartney has played the legendary Liverpool nightspot since 1963. It was while at the Cavern Club that The Beatles were first spotted by their future manager Brian Epstein who helped them become arguably the most famous band in the history of popular music. Although there were only three hundred tickets up for grabs, response from fans all over the world has been staggering. Many of those who failed to get tickets have travelled thousands of miles to be in Liverpool on Tuesday night.

For Dave Jones, the owner of the current Cavern Club, the whole event has been a magical experience. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It's amazing when you think there must be 30 (m) million Beatles fans in the world and there were 300 tickets and they were free, just the whole thing is a fairy story, but it isn't, it's true." SUPER CAPTION: Dave Jones, owner of Cavern Club The Beatles, who hold the record for the most successful group ever, have sold an estimated one (b) billion records and audio tapes, and their popularity shows no sign of waning. For McCartney himself, fans are always a welcome sight and he insists that Liverpool will always be his real home. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Hello...yes, well I'm here..oh my God they're all here, I'm just here to say that it's fantastic to be back here at the Cavern, I've come back because I've done a rock and roll album called "Run Devil Run", and we're plugging it, plug, plug, but what better way to rock out the century, it's where it all began and this is where the century will end, playing rock and roll, which if you remember the Beatles before the Beatles, was a fabulous little rock and roll band and was what held us together for so long and what made us so good I think, he said modestly, I'm back here because I love Liverpool and no more fantastic place to rock out the century, thank you very much for coming, God bless everybody."

They didn't seem like good alternatives, even though it isn't something that I would have wished on anyone else, it's something I'm gonna do, so we'll get on with it and have a go.

McCARTNEY, WINGS AND A TOKYO JAIL In a new US film entitled, 'Wingspan', Sir Paul McCartney talks candidly about his near breakdown after The Beatles split and of his spell in a Japanese jail. The two-hour movie will screen on American television in early May and then be shown around the world. The broadcast coincides with the release of a new 40-track double CD package that celebrates the hits of McCartney's post-Beatles band Wings. In the documentary Paul says: "I always thought you could not follow The Beatles. 'Wingspan' is the story and soundtrack of how we set out to do it." During the documentary, McCartney reveals how he nearly had a nervous collapse after The Beatles split and how he knew he would have to set about rebuilding his music career from scratch. The singer's spokesman comments: "Instead of arriving at stadium concerts in police-escorted limousines, Wings drove themselves to small halls unannounced and uninvited, and were paid for their impromptu shows in 50p pieces." Wings, who formed in 1971, had success with songs such as 'Live And Let Die' and 'Band On The Run', and were Number One in the UK for nine weeks in 1977 with 'Mull Of Kintyre'. The singer, who recently topped a chart of money earners from music, talks honestly about his arrest at Tokyo's Narita Airport in 1980, and subsequent imprisonment, for the possession of cannabis. 'Wingspan' also features previously unseen home-movie footage of the star's late wife Linda, who died of breast cancer in 1998. The double CD, also due out in May, features 40 of Wings' greatest hits including Jet, Silly Love Songs, My Love and No More Lonely Nights. Wings consisted of Paul and Linda McCartney and Denny Laine on guitar. Denny Seiwell, Geoff Britton and Joe English all played drums for the band at various times and Lawrence Juber and Jimmy McCulloch were additional guitarists. The special is written, produced and directed by the ex-Beatle's daughter, Mary, and her husband, Alistair Donald. The LP will be launched in Germany on Sunday (May 6) and the film will be showcased at the forthcoming Cannes Film Festival.

Harrison had surgery to remove a cancerous growth from one of his lungs at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, according to the statement released to the British media. The lawyers did not say when the surgery occurred but said it had been successful. They said Harrison was relaxing in Tuscany, Italy. In 1999, Harrison suffered a punctured lung when he was stabbed by a man who broke into his home in Henley-on-Thames, west of London. A 34-year-old man, Michael Abram, was acquitted by reason of insanity and confined to a mental hospital. "The operation was successful and George has made an excellent recovery. He is in the best of spirits and on top form - the most relaxed and free since the attack on him in 1999," the statement said. Harrison was treated for throat cancer in the late 1990s after he found a lump on his neck in 1997. The Beatles broke up in 1970 and Harrison, the youngest and quietest of the Fab Four went on to a successful solo career with hits including "My Sweet Lord."

Three hundred tickets to the concert were raffled across the globe and those adoring Beatles fans lucky enough to have been selected for this exclusive event will fill the dark underground club in Liverpool on Tuesday night. While McCartney hasn't played there since 1963, he made a total of 281 appearances at the club while under the management of their late manager and confidante Brian Epstein. The concert on Tuesday will mark the first time that McCartney has played the legendary Liverpool nightspot since 1963. It was while at the Cavern Club that The Beatles were first spotted by their future manager Brian Epstein who helped them become arguably the most famous band in the history of popular music. Although there were only three hundred tickets up for grabs, response from fans all over the world has been staggering. Many of those who failed to get tickets have travelled thousands of miles to be in Liverpool on Tuesday night. SOUNDBITE: (English) "This is world music, this is rock and roll as world music today because rock and roll is drawing the world to this little place (the Cavern Club)" SUPER CAPTION: Geoff Baker, spokesman for Paul McCartney McCartney will be playing material from his newest album, "Run Devil Run," as well as other songs from the likes of Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, and Little Richard. Also scheduled to join McCartney for the Cavern Club show is Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, who played on several tracks on "Run Devil Run." McCartney first played the Cavern Club back in 1958 as part of The Quarrymen, forerunners to The Beatles, a group that also included both John Lennon and George Harrison. The Beatles later played lunchtime shows at the venue - the first in February 1961. Their total fee was five pounds sterling (8 U-S dollars). This will be McCartney's 281st appearance at the club. Despite the fact that The Beatles split up in 1970, their loyal fan-base has, if anything, increased.

And I told myself, and I meant it: if it didn't sell, I still had the lyrics, and I had the greatest time in the world and met some splendid people. But, now, I've still got that (that memory) and now it's sold! (Laughs)" 21. Sign reading "Rock and Pop Memorabilia" outside auction room STORYLINE John Lennon's handwritten lyrics for 'Give Peace A Chance', and various other pop and rock memorabilia went under the hammer in London on Thursday. The piece of musical history was expected to fetch between 200- and 300-thousand British pounds (395,539 - 593,309 US dollars), but sold at 350 thousand British pounds (692,194 US dollars).. The framed lyrics were sold by Gail Renard, who was with Lennon the moment the Beatles icon scribbled them down on a piece of paper in a hotel suite in Montreal during John and Yoko Ono's historic "Bed-In for Peace" in 1969. The lyrics - to become part of Give Peace A Chance - were supposed to used for a recording session of that song later on the evening of 1 June but shortly before the recording, Lennon asked Renard to rewrite them in larger print so that everybody participating could see them. Renard kept the original, and because of that, is now 350-thousand pounds richer. Speaking to AP Television after the auction, a happy Renard recalled being uncertain whether her personal memorabilia would do well at auction. "I panicked yesterday, because I didn't think it would sell," she said. Renard added that if it hadn't she would have savoured the memories: "I had the greatest time in the world and met some splendid people." While the Lennon lyrics were expected to fetch the highest price, it was another Beatles item that claimed the record: A drumskin used by the Fab Four on the front cover of their 1967 album 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band', fetched 450-thousand pounds (889,964 US dollars). The drum skin smashed Christie's estimate by selling for nearly five times as the anticipated price of 100 - 150-thousand pounds (197,769 - 296,654 US dollars). Other items that went on sale were a pair of prescription sunglasses worn by Lennon, a Marshall amp used by Jimi Hendrix for concerts in the late 1960s, a rare poster advertising pioneering punk band The Sex Pistols and a 1974 Rickenbacker guitar belonging to Paul Weller.

CLIP - Trailer - A Hard Day's Night 2. Sot Richard Lester - "Our clapper loader who is the person who has put all the film and the negatives in to cans and is going to take it to technicolour or where ever it was to be processed, who was about 24 years old, dark haired with the same sort of hair do, came smiling down having finished the first days work with all the negatives and the screening started and he panicked and he thought I've got to outrun them and he started to run and he was carrying 8 or 9 tins of film and they caught up with him and the film got dropped and we lost half the first shooting negative. It was lying around under the tracks and he ran for his life. I think that's a reasonable indication of what it was like to make a Beatles film." 3. CLIP - A Hard Day's Night 4. Sot Richard Lester - "There was always that sense, especially in being with them, that they were four parts of a marriage. They were very protective and very close and very like each other. To help out it was important to create artificially that George was mean and that Paul was the cute one, John was the cynic and Ringo was at the back and unloved and to that extent that developed more and more as the films went on." 5. CLIP - A Hard Day's Night 6. Sot Richard Lester - "It was an easy game to play, that he was the one that was feeling that he lacked respect and nobody paid that much attention to him and of course he had a lugubrious expression permanently and he did have the ability to come up with the asinine non-sequitur it was he that invented the title hard days night, I'm sure everyone knows. And came up with the title of the second film which was '8 arms to hold you' and thank god we didn't have to use it in the end. 7. CLIP - A Hard Day's Night 8. Sot Richard lester - "If you have three weeks to cut, edit, dub, mix, check a print on a film, you have no time what so ever for thinking that I have achieved aesthetic greatness, you are just think oh god it is three days away and lets hope that it works." 9. CLIP - A Hard Day's Night A HARD DAY'S NIGHT BACK IN CINEMAS ================================== It could be 1964 all over again - mop top hairstyles still cut it for the fashion concious, Beatles albums are still jumping off the shelves, and the fab four are still drawing the crowds. Especially when their film A HARD DAY'S NIGHT gets a re-run on the big screen, 37 years after it's first release. Director Richard Lester's vision of a day in the life of the world's most popular rock and rollers during the height of Beatlemania is still considered by fans and critics to be the greatest music movie ever committed to celluloid. The grainy black and white comedy shows the band travelling from train to hotel to television studio with their road crew, while "Grandfather" stirs up trouble. The film also features Lionel Blair, Victor Spinetti, Derek Nimmo and a young Phil Collins, as an uncredited 'screaming fan'. Screenwriter Alun Owen wanted to portray the claustrophobia of fame experienced by the biggest band in the world, and Lester says he wasn't far off reality. The Director tells how at the end of the first day's filming on board the train, John, Paul, George and Ringo were dropped off outside London to avoid the inevitbale crush of fans waiting for them at the station. A clapper loader with a mop top haircut stayed on the train looking after the vital rolls of film. But as he walked into the station he was mobbed by thousands of fans desperate to meet a Beatle, and zeroing in on his hair. In his panic, he dropped the cans - losing the entire days work. Lester also muses how the band interacted with one another in those early days. He explains they were like a four-way marriage, and were so similar they had to project four deliberately separte images to give fans something to latch on to - not unlike the Spice Girls. "To help out it was important to create artificially that George was mean and that Paul was the cute one, John was the cynic and Ringo was at the back and unloved and to that extent that developed more and more as the films went on." But Ringo won a place in Lester's heart - "It was an easy game to play, that he was the one that was feeling that he lacked respect and nobody paid that much attention to him and of course he had a lugubrious expression permanently and he did have the ability to come up with the asinine non-sequitur it was he that invented the title hard days night, I'm sure everyone knows" Today, 30 years after the Beatles split up, appearances by surviving Beatles still causes a stir. Sir Paul McCartney attended the Liverpool premiere of the movie last night (Monday). Lester may have had no idea how successful the film was going to be while they were shooting to a tight deadline, but it's re-release is more predictable. Fans are expected to flock to see the old Beatles magic when 'A Hard Day's Night' goes on general release in the UK on Friday. The movie is out elsewhere around the world between now and July.

Still shot of one of the electronic billboards STORYLINE: Two men accused of placing electronic devices around the US city of Boston in a publicity stunt were released from jail on Thursday, apparently amused by the incident. The devices stirred fears of terrorism and shut down parts of the city on Wednesday. Peter Berdovsky, 27 and Sean Stevens, 28, both pleaded not guilty to the charges of placing a hoax device and disorderly conduct. The two defendants were released on a 2,500 US dollar bond. The suspects are accused of placing lighted signs around the city to promote a cartoon series called Aqua Teen Hunger Force, a late-night animated series on the Cartoon Network, distributed by Turner Media. Officials found 38 one-foot (0.3 metre) tall signs, which lit up. Wires and batteries protruded from the devices. Most depicted a cartoon character making an insulting hand gesture. After their arraignment the two defendants held a brief press conference, but refused to answer any questions, launching into a nonsensical discussion with reporters about hairstyles of the sixties and seventies. Berdovsky and Stevens would not comment on the charges against them or the chaos that resulted from the suspicious packages yesterday in Boston. Protesters gathered outside the courthouse to voice support for the defendants. Friends of the accused Tracy O'Conner and Jennifer Mason said there had been a huge over reaction to the incident. "Yesterday was the funniest day in Boston history," Mason said. Zebbler.com, an internet site displaying digital video artwork, posted a video made by the defendants which shows them creating and placing small, lighted billboards around Boston.

Tickets for the solo performance, billed as a "oneoff, end of the millennium tribute to rock and roll", will be free. But the club's tiny capacity means just a lucky 150 to 200 fans picked from an international ballot will be able to attend the concert on December 14. This was were the band honed their musical talents and developed the close fit harmonies as they entertained their home town audience and worked their way towards international fame. McCartney says "Rock'n'Roll has shaped my life and changed the sound and the thinking of the century. "Before the Beatles ever got big we started out playing rock'n'roll at the Cavern. I am going back for just one night as a nod to the music that has always and will ever thrill me. "I can't think of a better way than to rock out the end of the century with a rock'n'roll party at the cavern." The allocation system for the tickets is expected to be announced today. Those who miss out are likely to be able to watch it live on television but that will be little consolation to fans, a spokesman for Sir Paul acknowledged. Sir Paul announced the concert at the end of a interview with Michael Parkinson that will be screened on BBC1 at 9.30pm tonight.

Clip 'SILLY LOVE SONGS' - Wings 2. SOT PAUL McCARTNEY (on not wanting to repeat Beatles style):" With Wings the idea was to try and do something different, because you know I think I could have just put together another band and done music, well in fact done my Beatles songs, or done music very Beatle like and just tried to carry on that style of music. It seemed to me that it wasn't a good idea and that we had to try to do something completely different. " 3. Clip 'HI HI HI' Wings 4. SOT PAUL McCARTNEY (on the lyrics of Hi Hi Hi, banned by the BBC): "I never really liked those lyrics I mean it is a bit mad, get ready for my Polygon and I obviously mustn't have written it down for the people who were doing the publishing, registering it, which is normally the sort of young girl, the secretary or something, and she had listened to it, and she came up with the lyrics which got published somewhere which I thought were better 'Lie on the bed and get ready for my body gun' and I though, now that is getting to be sexy." 5. clip 'JET' Wings (Live from Rockshow) 6. SOT PAUL McCARTNEY (on lyrics to jet): " We actually had a little puppie called Jet because he was black and I think it was the little puppie that sort of started me off, I just thought it was a good name Jet. " 7. clip 'JET' 8. SOT PAUL McCARTNEY (on lyrics to jet): " Then as I sometimes do, I just went into sort of fantasy, and just went to stream of consciousness, so it didn't end up being about a puppie, it then was just about a relationship, Jet, I can almost remember the funny face.. and I don't know I just sort of filled it in." 9. Clip 'MAYBE I'M AMAZED' Wings 10. SOT PAUL McCARTNEY (on lyrics to Maybe I'm Amazed being about his love for wife Linda): " Basically it was just a love song, `maybe I'm amazed at the way you hung me on a line, you pulled me out of time', it is just different ways to express different sides of what I was feeling." 11. Clip 'LISTEN TO WHAT THE MAN SAID' Wings (live from Rockshow) BAND ON THE RE-RUN ====================== SIR PAUL McCARTNEY talks candidly about life in his post Beatles group WINGS in a new US film entitled 'WINGSPAN'. The two-hour movie will screen on American television in early May and then be shown around the world. The broadcast coincides with the release of a new 40-track double CD package that celebrates the hits of McCartney's post-Beatles band Wings. The documentary includes topics the star has stayed coy about before, including his arrest in Tokyo's Narita Airport in 1980, and subsequent imprisonment, for the possession of cannabis. The singer also talks about the instant handicap of having to follow The Beatles. Wings formed in 1971, and he explains he could have continued writing the same kind of songs, but felt he didn't want to repeat himself. Instead he wanted to make his mark by following a totally different route with Wings. One of their earlier singles, 'Hi Hi Hi' hit another hurdle - it was banned by the BBC for being too sexual. The singer remembers how a publishing secretary transcribed the lyrics incorrectly - instead of 'lie on the bed and get ready for my polygon' she had logged them as 'get ready for my body gun' - prompting the star to joke 'now that is getting sexy'. McCartney also talks about how he approached songwriting. He explains how the hit 'Jet' came about, saying it was initially inspired by a jet black puppy, before his stream of consciousness took over, and filled it out into a song about a relationship. 'Wingspan' also features previously unseen home-movie footage of the star's late wife Linda, who died of breast cancer in 1998. The singer talks about the song 'Maybe I'm Amazed', explaining he wrote it as a love song for his wife, writing lyrics that reflected all the different ways to express how he was feeling at the time. Wings, also had success with songs such as 'Live And Let Die', 'Band On The Run', and 'Listen to What the Man Said' and were Number One in the UK for nine weeks in 1977 with 'Mull Of Kintyre'. In total the band had 7 million-seller singles, and five USA No.1 albums. The double CD, also due out in May, features 40 of Wings' greatest hits including Jet, Silly Love Songs, My Love and No More Lonely Nights. Wings consisted of Paul and Linda McCartney and Denny Laine on guitar. Denny Seiwell, Geoff Britton and Joe English all played drums for the band at various times and Lawrence Juber and Jimmy McCulloch were additional guitarists. The special is written, produced and directed by the ex-Beatle's daughter, Mary, and her husband, Alistair Donald. The LP will be launched in Germany on Sunday (May 6) and the film will be showcased at the forthcoming Cannes Film Festival.

FEED: SCRIPT: XFA Story: McCartney concert preps Location: Liverpool Date: December '99 A mere 150 lucky music fans are eagerly counting down the hours until PAUL MCCARTNEY triumphant return to the stage of the legendary Cavern Club after 36 years. The last time McCartney played at the Liverpool club he was part of an up and coming local, beat combo group called THE BEATLES. The group had a growing following in Liverpool but it would be another few months before the group burst onto the world musical stage and changed the face of popular music for ever. This will be Paul, now Sir Paul's smallest concert in three decades. And while the last minute preparations are being made at the tiny venue, speculation is running high about who will be joining him on stage. The rumours suggest that his fellow surviving Beatles, GEORGE HARRISON and RINGO STARR, will be joining him on stage. Although an audience of just 150 will be inside the rebuilt club, millions around the globe will see and hear it via a webcast, TV screenings and radio broadcasts. Sir Paul says he decided to mark the end of the millennium with a return to his roots, "I'm going back as a nod to the music that has always and will ever thrill me. I can't think of a better way to rock out the end of the century." The star will be performing with the band which featured on his recent album Run Devil Run including Pink Floyd's Dave Gilmour, Deep Purple's Ian Paice and Mick Green of The Pirates. A few "surprises" are also planned. The Beatles performed regularly at The Cavern before they won their first recording deal and continued to perform there until Beatlemania began to take hold. The Cavern is a mecca for Beatle fans from around the world. Director of The Cavern, Bill Heckle, said: "Rock 'n'roll history will be made tonight in Liverpool. It will be loud, hot and sweaty just the way rock'n'roll should be." Music fans from around the world have tried to get hold of tickets for the show but just 75 pairs were available and handed out through a raffle. Application forms were handed out on a firstcome, firstserved basis at HMV stores and names of the lucky winners were drawn from a hat on Friday. TV and newspaper reporters are flying in from 20 countries to attend the concert.

Various of Paul McCartney on stage performing 'Hello, Goodbye' at Sheffield Arena McCARTNEYS SPREAD BABY CHEER TO PRESS Former-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney and his wife Heather Mills McCartney posed for photographs on Thursday - their first public appearance together since the announcement that they are expecting a baby. The couple appeared before the sixty-year-old singer performed at a concert in Sheffield, northern England. But they had nothing to say about when the child is due. The ex-Beatle hugged his wife with both arms around her middle and joked, "I can't think why you want a photo." The two spent a few minutes with the photographers during preparations for the concert at Sheffield Arena. They disappeared back inside the arena after a couple of minutes as McCartney said, "We're not doing any talking." The couple announced the pregnancy on Wednesday and issued a brief statement saying "we are delighted with this happy news." A spokesman said the baby is due later this year, but did not specify a month. Mills, a 34-year-old former model who lost a leg in a motorcycle accident, was married to McCartney at an Irish castle in June 2002. The star and his second wife have reportedly been trying for a baby since then. Rumours of a pregnancy began circulating in March after Heather Mills McCartney was reportedly seen outside a childbirth clinic near the couple's north London home. Heather, 34, has no previous children, but Paul already has four. He is father to Mary, 33, Stella, 31, and James, 25, and stepfather to Heather, 39, all by his first wife Linda. His concert in the Sheffield Arena sold out its 12-thousand seat capacity.
