Hosted by musicologist Scott Freiman, the multimedia, filmed presentations in the lively and educational DECONSTRUCTING THE BEATLES series delve incisively into the history, creative process, and recording sessions of The Beatles. 1963: Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! explores the music that helped launch Beatlemania. In late 1962, The Beatles stepped into EMI Studios for the first time, meeting producer George Martin and beginning an unparalleled recording career. Over the next eighteen months, they would release four number one singles (including “She Loves You” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand”) and two number one albums, while becoming worldwide superstars.

Scott Freiman has produced 8 films in the DECONSTRUCTING THE BEATLES series, filmed at the Jacob Burns Film Center. He combines his love of the band with his experience as a composer, producer and engineer to deliver unique educational lectures, moving past the personalities of the four members to uncover the reasons why their music continues to be loved by millions.

On the DECONSTRUCTING THE BEATLES documentary series:

“Wonderful… What Freiman, a jolly engaging fellow with an encyclopedic knowledge of his subject, has done is take all the various revelations that have been documented over the past 50 odd years of information essential and arcane, and packaged them in an ‘educational’ presentation… By ‘deconstructing’ Freiman uses slides, clips, audio to present a chronology of how day by day the Beatles went to Abbey Road recording studio and made these now classic albums.”
