1. Linda McCartney: Behind The Camera

This documentary relates the professionnal life of Linda McCartney as a photographer.

Raised in New York, Linda was a Fine Art major at The University of Arizona. It was in Arizona that her passion for photographs began. When she returned to New York, she was still a self- taught photographer, but her career could begin anyway. Thus she started to work for Town and Country magazine in New York in the early Sixties.

Seizing an opportunity to photograph The Rolling Stones on a yacht on the Hudson River, Linda discovered that her work was immediately in demand. 

Coupling photography with her love of rhythm and blues, Linda specialised in capturing the character of the new musicians. Among the stars she worked with were: Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Who, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Otis Redding and The Beatles – subsequently meeting her husband, Paul.

Linda was a Rolling Stone magazine photographer, and her work with rock stars has appeared in magazines around the world. Exhibitions of her photography have also appeared in some 50 galleries worldwide, from South America to Australia. She has also exhibited in London’s prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum and has been voted the USA’s Female Photographer Of The Year.












2. Here, There And Everywhere - A Concert For Linda

This tribute concert to Paul's late wife Linda was performed at the Royal Albert Hall Saturday, April 10, 1999. 'Here, There and Everywhere - A Concert for Linda' was organised by her friends Carla Lane and Chrissie Hynde, in aid of animal charities which were close to Linda's heart. Ms Hynde said before the event: "This is the show that Linda, myself and our friends talked about often. We hope this show will reflect something of Linda's personality and her upbeat sense of humour." The evening was hosted by comedian Eddie Izzard.

At the conclusion of the show, Paul McCartney appeared on stage to perform one of the couple's favourite songs, Ricky Nelson's Lonesome Town, and his 1963 hit All My Loving. It was Paul's first public performance since his wife died and only his second in two years.

His voice cracked with emotion as he told the audience: "She's with us, she's loving it". He said fans' expressions of support had convinced him to attend.
"We could see there was a power," he said.

At the end of the show, as part of an all-star finale, Sir Paul McCartney faced the tumultuous cheers from the 5,000-strong audience and started a rendition of The Beatles' Let It Be.
