Dr. Mike Daley presents The Beatles And Their World as an online eight lecture series. When you purchase the series, you will be able to download a document containing a link leading to a Vimeo folder containing all eight lectures. You may watch the lectures at any time, in any order, as many times as you like.
This lecture series tracks the musical development of the Beatles, starting from the earliest days in Liverpool, moving through the excitement of Beatlemania, the rush of psychedelia, and the maturity of their studio years. While the focus will be on the music, we will also consider how recording techniques, the music business, the music of other artists, and the larger culture of the 1960s affected John, Paul, George, and Ringo as they created their classic works. Each lecture is enriched with video clips, rare images and music clips.
