Beatles - New 'Chip Shop' Footage From The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour Emerges

New clips showing The Beatles in their prime have been revealed on thespace.org. The footage of the fab four was believed to have been shot whilst they were filming the documentary The Magical Mystery Tour in 1967. The footage is taken from when the group were travelling to Newquay on the south coast of the UK, which was to be the group's final destination on the tour, and shows them on a coach trip to a classic British fish and chip shop.

The final version of The Magical Mystery Tour was shown on BBC television on Boxing Day in 1967 and then again in 1979. It has not been broadcast since. The film is to be shown though this coming Saturday (October 6th) to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles first single release Love Me Do. Additionally a documentary called Arena: The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour is to be shown, reassessing its artistic merit.

Talking of the decision to broadcast it again, editor of the BBC arts series Arena Anthony Wall said "Few people have seen Magical Mystery Tour in its entirety and the material in the chip shop has never been shown anywhere. It captures perfectly the fabulous world of The Beatles at this time. They're happily rubbing shoulders and sharing a simple meal with the other passengers on the coach, and at the same time creating an extraordinarily avant garde film."
