This review is from: The Tomorrow Show: John, Paul, Tom & Ringo (DVD)
THE TOMORROW SHOW WITH TOM SYNDER is a two-disc dvd set showing separate in-depth interviews with three of the Beatles: John, Paul, and Ringo.

DVD #1 - John Lennon - TRT Approx. 65 minutes

Features The Tomorrow Show's John Lennon tribute, which aired the night after he was murdered 12-09-80, containing a previous show that Lennon appeared on in 1975. That interview runs about 45 or so minutes and discusses everything from Beatlemania to Yoko's involvement in the group. Synder also asks Lennon how he feels about the success of his previous bandmates. The second segment talks about Lennon's immigration problem in New York City and Synder and Lennon are joined by John's immigration attorney Leon Wildes (to find out more about this case get The U.S. vs. John Lennon).
Once the show is done playing, the scene cut backs to the--then--current day and Synder is joined by journalist/writer Lisa Robinson and music producer Jack Douglas(produced Double Fantasy)and they talk about John Lennon and Yoko Ono and what he was like at home etc.
I found the interviews fascinating to watch and Synder is an expert at asking difficult questions without turning his guest off.

DVD #2 - Paul and Linda McCartney; Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach (Angie Dickinson-Segment 2). These are two shows: the McCartneys interviewed on one and Starr/Dickinson on the other.

On the McCartney show(air date 12-20-79), Synder interviews Paul and Linda about their group "Wings" and asks about the difficulty in starting another group that's not the Beatles and whether or not the Beatles will reunite. He also asks them about touring etc., and how Linda became involved in "Wings" when she didn't come from a musical background. A music video called "Spin It On" by the group is also shown.

The show featuring Ringo aired on 11-25-81 and Ringo had just released an album(Stop and Smell the Roses). They talk about his marriage to Barbara Bach(who joins them half way through), how "Ringo" got his name, and why he always perceived himself as the dumb one in the group(which Synder quotes from an article in Rolling Stone magazine)and how he felt after Lennon's murder. Very informative and Ringo is entertaining and funny as usual, but the segment is way too short, running at 25-minutes.

Although I enjoyed the interview with Angie Dickinson, I would have liked to have a full show with just Starr.

The quality of each show is pretty good, of course it doesn't look as sharp as though it were done today, but it works. All in all I would recommend this to any Beatle fan or fan of either John, Paul, or Ringo or Wings.
