Unseen Beatles photos up for sale - VIDEO

Paul Fairweather of Omega Auctions talks about the unseen photos of The Beatles which are up for sale.

Unseen photos of The Beatles are to go up for sale after lying in a family album for nearly 50 years.

The 20 black-and-white snaps have never been published and give a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of the Fab Four on the cusp of becoming a world phenomena.

They were taken as the band filmed their first movie, A Hard Day’s Night in March 1964 at the Scala Theatre in London.
