New documentary covers the genesis of music in Liverpool
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Tuesday, 05/08/12 2:17 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

Famous chronicler of Beatles history Bill Harry tells us here at Beatles News about a new documentary about the music of Liverpool that is coming out soon.

Bill Harry told us, "Garry Popper, a documentary producer and fellow Liverpudlian approached me in 2008 with his concept of a film about the Mersey music scene and its origins. There had been three other producers he'd discussed such a project with in the past and none of them were able to take it past the ideas stage. Garry did."

Garry wanted to create the definitive film of the Mersey musicians, most of who hadn't really been recognised internationally, due to the huge focus on the Beatles every time Liverpool music was discussed. The documentary is called "The City That Rocked The World" and was helmed by well-respected Liverpool director, Roger Appleton.

Bill says, "I was part of the team as Associate Producer and, when my book 'Liverpool - Bigger Than The Beatles' was published, it became obvious that the documentary should cover the music scene from the Fifties to the present day. Sound City's managing director Dave Pichilingi was brought in as Associate Producer dealing with the music scene from the Seventies onwards."

"This is the first dynamic film of why Liverpool became known as 'The World Capitol of Music' in the Guinness Book of Records, why it was voted Britain's No. I music city by English Heritage, and why it has no less than 50 No.1 records to its credit."

"The City That Rocked The World" will be a film for theatres, a television special, a DVD with lots of extras as there has been over 100 hours of filming, with 89 interviews and lots of live performances by various Mersey artists.
