Tracing the birth of the Beatles from their days as the Quarrymen to their first visit to EMI Studios, this multi-media presentation travels from Liverpool to Hamburg, then into the studio for the band's initial recording sessions, including "Love Me Do", "Please Please Me", "She Loves You", and "I Want To Hold Your Hand".
