At the start of the nineteen sixties, the city of LIVERPOOL was still struggling to cope with the fallout from the war.
For TONY and his teenage friends life was boring and dull.
Then THE BEATLES and BILL SHANKLY came along … and everything went completely crazy.
‘Blame It On The Beatles … And Bill Shankly’ tells you what it was like to be a teenager in Liverpool during the sixties. In 1960 The Beatles were just one of over three hundred local bands. Then they went off to Germany to play at a small club in the red-light district of Hamburg – and returned home a couple of months later completely transformed.
At around the same time a Scotsman called Bill Shankly was making big changes at Liverpool Football Club, one of the two major, local soccer teams, who were very much in the shadow of the other, much more successful, club called Everton. His task was to turn them into winners.
On Merseyside a group of teenagers are living what they think of as unremarkable and ordinary lives. Then they start to realise that The Beatles are changing everything. That their home city is suddenly becoming somewhere quite extraordinary.
Liverpool is the centre of the teenage universe as four local lads, John, Paul, George and Ringo, achieve fame across the world.
