'Yesterday' Brings Nostalgia at the 2019 Summer KCET Cinema Series
Following a screening of "Yesterday," Beatles authority Martin Lewis attended a Q&A hosted by Cinema Series host Pete Hammond. John, Paul, George and Ringo --- names that have instant recognition around the world. The boys from Liverpool remain to this day the most influential musicians and band in history. In this fictitious musical tale by Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later), a struggling singer/songwriter named Jack Malik (Himesh Patel, BBC’s EastEnders) is involved in a freak bus accident. After he awakens and returns to performing, he discovers no one in the world remembers The Beatles. No one, that is, except Jack.
Martin Lewis though primarily a producer (eg "Secret Policeman's Ball" series) and humorist, Martin Lewis is also considered one of the world's leading Beatles scholars. As a teenager he contributed to the band's 1968 authorized biography - then became a protege of Beatles publicist Derek Taylor. He worked closely with both Sir Paul McCartney and with Beatles producer Sir George Martin on several projects and was a consultant on the Beatles "Anthology" and "Live At The BBC". He was the producer and marketing strategist of the first DVD editions of "A Hard Day's Night" and "The Beatles on Ed Sullivan" - and on multiple other Beatles-related film, TV, home-video, radio, stage, symposium, photo and book projects. He was commissioned by Encyclopedia Britannica to write the first new article about the Beatles in 50 years. Martin’s widely published and quoted about the Beatles in print/digital media (Time Magazine, New York Times, L.A. Times, USA Today, Variety, Huffington Post etc) and on television (NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, BBC, Sky News, Fox News et al).
