John Lennon on George Martin - (c) BBC 1975

There has always been a great deal of debate about the contribution of George Martin to the music of The Beatles. Addressing this issue directly, here is a clip of John Lennon chatting with "whispering" Bob Harris of the BBC's "The Old Grey Whistle Test" in New York City, in 1975. I didn't upload the entire video for copyright reasons, but you can see it all here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02p774k Howard Goodall's otherwise excellent analysis of the Beatles' music (which largely ignores George Martin) can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/ZQS91wVdvYc (c) BBC 1975
