Editorial Reviews

Each program in the Impact! series puts the spotlight on the songs that have left an indelible mark on the world. Certain songs have come to define the times in which they appeared as they proved to be the catalyst for the transformation of the cultural and political landscape. Most set trends in music, fashion and dance while flouting convention and testing the boundaries of society's accepted moral values.

Besides setting the scene for the release of the song, the programs feature the song's creator(s) and explore its cultural impact and the ways that it changed the course of history. Guests include recording artists, music industry executives, cultural and political pundits and the music fans themselves for whom these songs became their life's soundtrack.

If there was ever a moment in history during which events conspired to change the course of society for years to come, it was during those dark days in America following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November of 1963. The transformation came from the unlikeliest of sources -- four mop-topped lads from Liverpool, England whose music was rooted in good old American rock 'n' roll but whose early repertoire consisted of simple songs of teen love that immediately struck a chord with an American public longing for a return to innocence. I Want To Hold Your Hand, the biggest-selling British single of all time, introduced The Beatles to America in early 1964 and quickly became their first number one single on this side of the Atlantic. It was to be the start of a remarkable journey for the "Fab Four" from the Beatlemania of those early years to the culture-altering presence of the group, collectively and individually, through the '70s and beyond.

With song clips, archive interviews with Peter Asher, Mike Love, Joe Perry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Paul Anka, Peter Noone, Mickey Dolenz.

First off, this is only 24 minutes long and looks to be a Canadian TV production. You get public domain footage of the Beatles, mixed in with a number of celebrity talking heads discussing the impact of the "I Want To Hold Your Hand" song upon the world of the 1960s. There is not even a video of the Beatles performing the song. Do no -- I repeat, do not -- waste any money on this DVD.
