A Beatles biographer has donated his collection of Beatles memorabilia to the British Library. Hunter Davies befriended the stars in the 1960's. He says he wants his unique collection of letters and hand written lyrics to be kept intact.
"I want my Beatles collection to be kept together, in one place, and on public display, and the British Library is the perfect home for it. I have always been pleased to see them in the treasures gallery, next to the Magna Carta, and works by Shakespeare and Beethoven, because that's where I honestly think they belong."
