Coming this year:
Wingspan, the official MPL documentary on the career of Wings is released. It has been put together by Paul's son-in-law, Alistair Donald. "He's researched it all... It's all film stuff of Wings," Paul says to Patrick Humphries. "There's a version of 'Give Ireland Back To The Irish', done live in my front room ... There's quite a lot of unreleased Wings stuff, and I'm waiting to see how much he uses in the film or the TV show or whatever it turns into ..."
The Beatles 1995 Anthology series appears on DVD and as, quite possibly, a four-video box set, edited down from its previous eight-video set.
The re-mixed and re-mastered version of the Let It Be film from 1970, a home video version, on VHS and DVD, with extra footage, is likely.
A new album by Paul is very likely, and he will appear in a documentary about Memphis' Sun Studios aired later this year on PBS. (See entry for Monday March 6, 2000.) The show also includes appearances by The Who, Bob Dylan, Robert Plant, Bryan Ferry and Jimmy Page.
A new album by George is a slight possibility, featuring the title Portrait Of A Leg End, with songs, possibly, including 'Valentine', 'Pisces Fish', and 'Brainwashed'.
Paul has a 60-paintings exhibition at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, where he used to hang out with John.
