A new documentary about the Beatles influence in China is coinciding with a Beijing exhibition to mark the 55th anniversary of the band's first album

On March 22, 1963, the Beatles released their debut album, Please Please Me. Recorded in EMI's Abbey Road studio, it reached the top of the British album charts in May of that year and remained there for 30 weeks before being replaced by their second album, With the Beatles. It also started the journey of arguably the most legendary and revolutionary rock bands of all time, brought into being by its four members - Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr - in Liverpool in 1960.

Fifty-five years later, from March 22, 2018, 28 famous Beatles albums including Abbey Road, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and The Beatles 1962-1966, have been made available on major Chinese streaming services, such as QQ Music, Kugou and Kuwo.
