Editorial Reviews

Featuring new and exclusive interviews, Beatles' Biggest Secrets, reveals the inside story of the world's greatest pop group with explosive revelations about the extraordinary lives of Liverpool's favorite sons. From the band's formation and early exposure to the gritty world of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll in the dingy strip clubs of Hamburg, Germany, the program then travels forward through the Beatles' careers with shocking surprises about their relationships with each other, their women and their inner circle. Filled with interviews from friends, relatives, colleagues and former girlfriends as well as rare film footage and original artwork by artist Klaus Voormann, this is the first fully rounded Beatles portrait to appear on DVD. This is the Beatles at their best -- and their worst!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fills a niche September 2, 2008
This is NOT a well-rounded documentary as claimed, but it fills a niche in the ever-expanding library of Beatles material. It focuses on the "dark" side of the Beatles story, leaving out the joy, generosity and, most of all, the music. But no doubt most of it is true, and it has its place in balancing the bigger picture.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Money March 26, 2012
Thank God I did not purchase this. My cable company showed this on the BBC Channel. It is pure junk and nothing more. No evidence of anything. Of course the Beatles were not perfect, but this is ridiculous. Obviously put together by someone who hates these guys. It's a shame I couldn't give it less than one star.

3.0 out of 5 stars Accompany September 17, 2007
I got this CD when I got the book 'Shout' and it is basically the accompanying DVD. Funny thing is that the book did not talk a lot about the music, and neither does this DVD. In fact it seems that they didn't have the rights to the music so you don't hear even one snippet of Beatles music, just people talking, which is nice but not like it should be.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish July 19, 2009
The highlight of the first 30 minutes is Paul McCartney never paid back Allan Williams 15 quid and a bar maid in Hamburg wasn't very impressed by their first gig. Woo hoo. A giant waste of time. There is only about 5 minutes of juicy material and almost everything is sound bytes from out of context interviews or misleading innuendo like "accused of arson in Hamburg" (but never actually charged). Is it really a secret that John was violent? He very famously admitted on a TV interview that he was "a hitter". The entire "documentary" was overtly agenda driven and has hardly a shred of hard evidence. Almost everything is conjecture and you'll also notice that most of those interviewed qualify almost every comment they make. I suppose if you didn't know Brian Epstein was gay or the Beatles took drugs and had lots of sex with girls other than their wives you'd be shocked but this DVD is pretty much worthless drivel...
