The Beatles’ Please Please Me Remaking a Classic on BBC Four

Posted by  in Live Events

On the 50th anniversary of the famous 12-hour session at Abbey Road which resulted in the Beatles’ iconic album Please Please Me, leading artists such as Stereophonics, Graham Coxon, Gabrielle Aplin, Joss Stone, Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze, Paul Carrack, Mick Hucknall and I Am Kloot attempt to record the same songs, in the same timescale, in the same studio. The results will be captured in this programme, presented by Stuart Maconie. Amongst those paying their own tribute to the album’s success are Burt Bacharach and Guy Chambers, as well as people lucky enough to have been there 50 years ago telling the remarkable story of what happened that day, including engineer Richard Langham and Beatles’ press officer Tony Barrow.

The Beatles’ Please Please Me: Remaking a Classic is part of a season of programmes celebrating the long player across BBC Four, Radio 2 and 6 Music.
