The Brian Epstein Story

My friend Juliet from Paris sent me a link to “The Brian Epstein Story,” done as a British TV series, nine episodes of ten minutes each. I watched them last night: a bit slow and nothing really new, but still worth watching for a Beatle nut, the moving story of a beautiful, smart and honest young man who cared deeply about his “boys,” as he called the group he nurtured and helped to bloom. Both Jewish and gay, a lonely outsider, his death a tragic waste. If he had not died, would they have gone on together? Surely for longer, yes, if not forever like the Stones. Too too sad. Thank you from the world for what you did accomplish, Brian.

Here’s the first one and you can link to the others from there.
