On Sunday, BBC4 will air an one-hour documentary, “Love Me Do: The Beatles ‘62”, in which Stuart Maconie explores the story behind the Beatles first single, and how it went on to change music history and popular culture forever.

Then it's all down to London in time to celebrate John Lennon’s birthday by playing a sold out dinner concert on the Thames aboard the all-glass symphony boat. 100 very lucky guests will enjoy this special evening.
