Bob Dylan & the Liverpool Kids

Here's a short - around 10 minutes - BBC documentary on the Liverpool kids who posed with Dylan while he was on the legendary 1966 tour.

"Dylan and Feinstein [the photographer] just seemed to have stumbled into what amounted to a kids' playground. They were all out in the streets because their parents were probably watching Everton in the Cup Final that day. It was such a clash of 1960s culture. The kids looked like Victorian street urchins and Dylan looked like a man from Mars with his loud shirt and wild hair - that's what fascinated me." Link to story.
You can find the photo in the booklet of the Live 1966: The "Royal Albert Hall" Concert CD. Dylan fan Chris Hockenhall tracked 9 of the 10 kids 40 tears later for the documentary.
