Could this be the first piece of film showing future Beatles Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison, along with Paul’s brother, Mike McCartney? They are on screen for just a couple of seconds – and you can’t make out the tiny figures in the distance – but local historian and Fab Four fan Peter Hodgson, from Kirkby, believes a Liverpool City Police recruitment film from 1958 contains a world first.Read More Beatles’ youngest fan club member’s collection going on display in Liverpool todayPeter Hodgson from Kirkby, pictured with Paul McCartney in 1995 (Photo: handout)Peter says: “The film is called Service. The version I found that had been posted on YouTube is dated 1950 but after doing a bit of digging I discovered it was actually made in 1958. The McCartneys’ then home, in Forthlin Road, backed onto the police training centre – and the centre’s annual summer show is featured on the film.“You can see four or five people in the distance watching the action from on top of the concrete shed in the back garden of 20 Forthlin Road, where Paul and Mike lived.”
