Top critical review
Recommended, but be aware..

This was an excellent programme on the box last year (2013), and is recommended to any fan who missed seeing it. It's basically the broadcasted one-hour TV studio concert, which includes an excellent mix of unexpected Beatles songs and choice tracks from his brilliant then-new album "New". The band, as per usual for Macca's stable 21st century line up, is exemplary. This release also includes an extra 49 minutes of backstage footage, interviews, etc., from the event, and the concert is presented in anamorphic 16:9.
The stealth downside is these are full price releases, advertised and packaged to look like DVDs, but the actual discs are only single-layer DVD-Rs. This, of course, means they may not archive for as long as proper DVDs. Also the image quality is very slightly short of the original standard definition broadcast (I still had it recorded to compare), due to slight compression to accommodate the total running time onto a single layer DVD-R burn. The sound quality is, however, excellent.
Recommended, with possible reservations..
