Description

Features the Beatles arriving into Belfast International airport, ahead of their 1963 concert at the Ritz Cinema, with fans waiting for a glimpse of the famous four holding posters saying "Welcome Our Boys". As the band disembark onto Northern Irish soil and wave to the crowd, fans begin to scream in excitement and once they are all packed into a car and begin to drive away, girls give chase to the car whilst another collapses in tears. Final scene, sees police officers carrying girls who have fainted. 

Notes

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With a line-up comprising John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they are regarded as the most influential band of all time.  The group were integral to the development of 1960s counterculture and popular music's recognition as an art form.  

They performed at Belfast's Ritz cinema on 8 November 1963 with the 1964 concerts, at the King's Hall, being The Beatles' second and final visit to Northern Ireland. 

The Beatles performed a standard set of 10 songs throughout their Autumn Tour: I Saw Her Standing There, From Me To You, All My Loving, You Really Got A Hold On Me, Roll Over Beethoven, Boys, Till There Was You, She Loves You, Money (That’s What I Want) and Twist And Shout.
