Michael S Beatles brought down the USSR- PBS -not a concert (25) RE: How the Beatles rocked the Kremlin PBS 10 Nov 09

This was a wonderful show. Before turning it on, I assumed it was a concert film that woud be interrupted as usual by fundraising. I didn't know that the Beatles never played Moscow, and the film explains why they didn't. The authorities didn't like the Beatles at all. People throughout the former Soviet Union formed a widespread "community," based on their shared love of forbidden Beatles music, and of course their love of freedom and art. Like Kat says, a wonderful film about the human spirit. PBS usually repeats things for a while, so watch for this one.
