Astrid Kirchherr, who was the fiancée of "fifth Beatle" Stuart Sutcliffe, spoke to Andy Bonner on the first day of the Mathew Street Festival about her new exhibition of photographs of the group during their time in Hamburg. Kirchherr, who was portrayed in the film Backbeat, told Andy how she had fond memories of the era. Radio Clatterbridge carried the first broadcast interview with the Beatles shortly after Ringo Starr joined the group. Astrid Kirchherr's exhibition can be seen at the Victoria Gallery & Museum in Liverpool.
