    I really like both of their expressions.

  2. Kwai Chang says:

    is Sir George stoned?
    (or did Paul just show him a killer card trick?)

  3. A Car And A Room And A Room And A Room says:

    Decca studios, Broadhurst gardens, West Hampstead, London, November 1966 during The Family Way soundtrack sessions. Because of the orchestra used I’d say it was No. 3 studio but let’s go over to henry the horse…

    I love this photo. George and Paul had such an interesting relationship. Did anyone watch the recent UK TV show about George Martin. Some of the best scenes are Paul and George Martin talking and looking through old photos. Paul is rarely relaxed on camera but in these scenes he’s very relaxed around George Martin. They’re really terrific together.

    @ Louise: yes agree! I’ve never seen paul so relaxed on camera until this brilliantly made doco. And Ringo too.

    An update as to the studio – I stand corrected as judging by reliable information it’s CTS Studios (where Help! and Shea Stadium film dubbing work was done), and not Decca.

  9. JMA689 says:

    awesome, thanks Stephanie!

  10. Lizzie says:

    thanks so much stephanie, can’t wait to see this! a car: cts studios was still in west hampstead? i lived there during 1967/68 and that street name sounds quite familiar. will look it up in google maps.

  11. Lizzie says:

    just looked, it was one street over from where i lived. and the link didn’t work for me – it’s says it’s not a movie file.

    I had the same problem, but here’s how you can see it. Once you have downloaded the zip-file, open it up and then drag the Q-file(Produced by…) to your desktop. Then open RealPlayer, go to Open-Browse, choose the movie file. That’s how I got to play it. Just finished it. It’s quite lovely and moving.To see George and Paul converse… it is so touching. I love them.

    Did anyone see this in the rolling stone album by album guide that was just issued? It was a great read!

  14. stephanie says:

    the file is a “zip” file which is a compressed file, common with Bit Torrent sites (eg Megaupload where the George Martin video is hosted), the other common compressed file type being “rar” files.

    Compressed files enable very large dvd or video files to be compressed and downloaded easily using less bandwidth.

    After you download file, you need software to “unzip” or “decompress” them so they convert to a movie file that can be watched your PC.

    The best free software, in my opinion, to do do this, 7 Zip, found here:

    the movie worked fine for me… Lovely documentary. The shoot of George and his wife driving in their little car is so cute.
    Thanks again for the link.

    Siemens V72 preamps below the console. Almost the same as the V72S found on EMI’s REDD.37, except EMI’s were factory made rated 200 Ohms. Lockwood monitor speakers on the background wall, similar to those used on EMI Studios during the recording of Abbey Road.
