From The Beatles Monthly Book, N°105, January 1985:

At the London premiere of Paul’s “Broad Street” film, on November 29, someone in the cinema, much to the amusement of everybody, lustily cried out “Thank God!” at the end of the movie when Bryan Brown says “We got the tapes”.

If all goes according to schedule the film will go on general London release on January 11 and then move out nationwide at the end of this month.

The Beatles Diary Volume 2: After The Break-Up 1970-2001

"An updated edition of the best-seller. The story of what happened to the band members, their families and friends after the 1970 break-up is brought right up to date. A fascinating and meticulous piece of Beatles scholarship."

We owe a lot to Keith Badman for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles after the break-up and how their stories intertwined together!
