Liverpool celebrates 50 years of Sergeant Pepper

In the song it was 20 years ago - but in real life it is 50 years ago today that The Beatles brought out what is probably their most famous album of all time - Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band.

Tonight a new film about the album is having its premiere there and lots of other Sgt Pepper related events are also planned over the rest of the summer.
