Journey of Discovery:

This is the story of a high school skiffle band that woke up one day in the rarified air of international superstardom. The story of The Beatles is a story of friendships made and lost, musical barriers broken, and lives permanently altered.

It's a long way from Liverpool to legend. The journey has been the subject of thousands of books, articles, interviews, college courses, discussion groups, and late night bull sessions. And well it should be. When you add up all of the Beatles albums, singles, CDs and videos that have ever been sold, the total surpasses 1-billion. That’s billion, with a 'B.’

The Beatles Timeline:

Our own trip down the path of Beatles discovery begins with a look at the distinct periods along their career timeline.
