The British Broadcasting Corporation has unearthed a rare interview of two Beatles on the cusp of worldwide mania.

The film footage contained an interview with Paul McCartney and John Lennon reminiscing about the day they met a long, long time ago in Liverpool.

The film sat for forty four years in a garage in London until film fan Richard Jeffs uncovered the footnote to pop culture.

While most of the footage filmed in a Scottish film studio in April 1964 is beyond repair, audio experts were able to salvage a portion of the interview.

On the tape Lennon revealed how he was playing a local skiffle band when Mac, also a fan of the skiffle beat, intro’ed himself.

They then formed The Quarrymen (with George Harrison) and the rest  — as they say —  is history.
