Previously Unseen Footage of The Beatles Sharing Fish and Chips Posted Online

Previously unseen footage of The Beatles sharing fish and chips while filming their 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour has been posted online.

Arts website The Space is hosting the footage, discovered during the making of a new documentary about the film from BBC Two's Arena.

It shows The Beatles taking a break from the Magical Mystery Tour coach at a fish bar in Taunton, Somerset.

The film was first broadcast by the BBC on Boxing Day 1967.

It was not a hit, confusing the festive audience, and was savaged by critics in reviews that branded it rubbish.

It will follow a new documentary, Arena: The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour, looking at the film's artistic merit and cultural significance.
