Our mantle starts in 1967, when The Beatles were asked to be a part of the very first, live satellite broadcast across 25 countries. We were asked by the BBC to help with the broadcast, so we needed to find out what roles there would be.
Who would be part of the team? What skills would we need?
'Someone to tune the guitars'
'Lighting technicians - to make sure the lights aren't too bright'
'To make the stage'
'To make sure the microphones are working and at the right height'
'Know how the satellite works'
'To work the cameras'
'Costume designers - to make sure The Beatles have the right clothes'
We all agreed to help with the broadcast and to be part of the team. We created a still of the role we would have in the team. We asked each other questions about our role.
'Is your job hard to do?'
'Do you need lot's of equipment?'
'Is your job musical?'
'Does it take a long time to do?'
Finding out about the 1960's
We had a visit today from Mr Cooper, who talked to us all about growing up in the 1960's. We prepared questions to ask him. We asked if he went on holiday, if he owned a television or a car. He brought in some Manchester United football programmes for us to look at, he could even remember the most important football match... the 1966 world cup! We asked him what sweets he ate and he gave us a packed of love hearts to try! We found out lot's about life in the 1960's and how some things were very different but also how some things were just the same as it is today.
