The year is 1957. The day is 6 July. A day that will change lives. The day John Lennon met Paul McCartney. In an emotional and intimate film, meet The Quarrymen, the remaining members of John Lennon's band who, 50 years on, are still going strong. Hear their exclusive memories of that moment, a moment that would prove to change the lives of many. There is one iconic photograph of that day, of John Lennon on stage with The Quarrymen, but the programme attempts to uncover other photographs of that day and for The Quarrymen it becomes a personal quest to find more memories of their past - a quest with an extraordinary climax - as a photograph which has not been seen for fifty years is rediscovered.
