A piece of rock history dating back more than 50 years and which has never previously been on public display has gone on show in Liverpool at the Beatles Story Museum.

The Hand written notes by George Martin from the first HELP! recording dated 15th February 1965 are being shown for the first time this weekend to mark their golden anniversary.

David Bedford from the Beatles Story Museum talked to Granada Reports earlier:

The childhood terraced home in Liverpool of the late Beatles guitarist George Harrison has sold at auction for £156,000.

The property, at 25 Upton Green in the Speke area, was the musician's home for a decade from 1949 after his parents Harold and Louise moved in following an 18-year spell on the council house waiting list.

The three-bedroom home was sold at the city's Cavern Club by Countrywide Property Auctions, which last year famously auctioned the house of another Beatle - John Lennon.

Childhood homes of Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney at Mendips and 20 Forthlin Road in Liverpool have been acquired by the National Trust for fans to visit.

Earlier this year another auction at the Cavern Club saw the sale of one of the band's earliest know photos playing at the legendary club.

Iconic Abbey Road album cover images go up for sale

All six images taken for the Beatles' Abbey Road album cover are going up for sale.

Photographer Iain MacMillan had only ten minutes to take the photos, so he asked the band to cross the road a few times, before Paul McCartney chose the now iconic front cover image.

Little did fans know at the time that the album, recorded in 1969, was the last time the Fab Four would work together.
