Bob Harris marks the 50th anniversary of the day when 15-year-old Paul McCartney first met then 16-year-old John Lennon. The casual event took place on 6 July 1957 following an outdoor church fete gig featuring Lennon's skiffle group the Quarrymen. Tonight's nostalgia fest includes previously unaired recollections that McCartney shared with Lennon's half-sister Julia Baird. Plus interviews with Cynthia Lennon, Mike McCartney, musicologist Spencer Lee, Colin Hall - who worked as custodian of Mendips, where the young John Lennon lived with his Aunt Mimi - and Quarrymen members Rod Davis, John "Duff" Lowe, Len Garry and Colin Hanton.
