Janine Ross, Marketing Manager, The Beatles Story Ltd.Bedford spent nearly a decade compiling
 Liddypool: Birthplace of the Beatles
(DaltonWatson Fine Books, Ltd). “Most authors who have written about the Beatles write aboutLiverpool from their computers in another country. All of my research was done the old-fashioned way: by visiting sites, talking to eyewitnesses first- hand, collecting storiesfrom friends and acquaintances of The Beatles, and viewing hundreds of documents and previously unseen photographs. It was a labour of love.”
