When the Beatles played in Munich on June 24, 1966 for the first show of their world tour (and final tour ever, as it turned out), the concert was filmed for, and the majority of it included in, a West German television broadcast. That footage has circulated on numerous bootleg videos (and some parts have surfaced in aboveboard productions), and at a glance this bootleg DVD looks like a definitive visual document of the event. Its core is the original 45minute TV special of the event aired on July 5, 1966, which only included about half of the Beatles' actual set, as well as several songs each by three support acts (Cliff Bennett the Rebel Rousers, Peter Gordon, and the German band the Rattles). There are also excerpts of German television newscasts on the Beatles' Munich appearance; silent color and black and white footage of the concert, also including other eventrelated glimpses of the Beatles; German and Danish TV reports on the Beatles' concert in Hamburg a couple of days later; black and white silent footage of the Hamburg concert; and a documentarylike segment titled "StarClub Memories" where a few people who knew the group in the early'60s Hamburg days talk about their memories.
