Notes: More Dezo Hoffmann home movie footage. This time they were at Weston Super Mare for six days of shows.
The Beatles are seen clowning around at the local beach and sun-bathing on the hotel`s patio.
They are also seen racing go-carts around a track and posing for a Dezo photo shoot for Typhoo Tea.
There is also footage of Gerry & The Pacemakers (who were also on the bill).

The footage got its UK debut on "The Tube" on December 3, 1982 and in Australia some of the footage
