Here's "The Beatles Come To Town" twice. The first version edits in footage of the Beatles on stage playing "She Loves You" and "Twist and Shout" from available outtake reels, replacing mainly audience shots. The outtake footage is in an unprocessed, brighter quality than the darker, more contrasty finished film. After this, an unedited original is here to allow you to see the difference.

Sheridan Smith takes the lead role in Jeff Pope's three-part drama charting Cilla Black's rise to fame in the 1960s. As the series opens, Priscilla White is a Liverpool typist with dreams of escaping the office and becoming a singer. It looks like her chance has come when she meets songwriter Bobby Willis, who claims to be in the music industry - so she's less than impressed to later discover his flash car is hired and he actually works in a bakery. Despite this inauspicious start, Cilla agrees to let him manage her, but will their arrangement still stand after her friends, a local band by the name of the Beatles, help her land an audition with genuine impresario Brian Epstein.

George Harrison - This Guitar (Can't Keep From Crying) with Dave Stewart & Bob Geldof (Rehearsal).
George Harrison Explains "This Guitar Can't Keep From Crying".
Here is the new Paul McCartney song called "The Hope Song".
The music of “Destiny” was a collaborative effort between Bungie's former in-house composer Marty O'Donnell, his partner Mike Salvatori and former Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney.
The New York Times reports that one of McCartney's contributions to the game's soundtrack, "The Hope Song" will be released as a single.
The Times calls McCartney's track the game's theme song, reporting that it is fully orchestrated and was recorded at Abbey Road Studios under the direction of Giles Martin, son of The Beatles producer Sir George Martin.
The song's producer is Mark "Spike" Stent, who has experience recording a handful of James Bond movie theme songs: Tina Turner's "GoldenEye" and Madonna's "Die Another Day."
McCartney announced his involvement in the Destiny score in 2012, tweeting, "I'm really excited to be working on writing music with @bungie, the studio that made Halo."
O'Donnell detailed his collaboration with McCartney last year when Bungie unveiled the first details on Destiny. He said the former Beatle was drawn to the project by his interest in the technology behind interactive music. "He didn't only want to do Paul McCartney music," O'Donnell said. "He wants to get involved in themes, how melodies and motives can be a touch point for people."
