A ‘lost’ interview with Paul McCartney and John Lennon from 1964 has been discovered in a south London garage.

Originally recorded for Scottish TV, it had lay untouched for 30 years before it was found by Richard Jeffs.

The nine-and-a-half-minute interview will be broadcast today (July 1) on BBC Radio 4, and will be available to stream online for the next week.

In it Lennon explains how he met McCartney at a village fete near Liverpool and goes into how the pair write songs together:

“We write them on an old piano, anything that’s lying around,” Lennon says. “Normally we just sit down and bash it out,” adds McCartney.
