Before MTV and VH1 there were music videos except they were called promotional films. The man who seized the moment and filmed all of The Beatles videos was none other than Tony Bramwell. Of the earliest videos are the two versions of The Beatles hit, I Feel Fine, along with the alternate “I Feel Fried.”
The Beatles broke new ground in the recording studio and pushed it until all the boundaries broke. Being close to such creativity had to be contagious. And Tony Bramwell was close enough to experience that. Tony also made videos for: We Can Work It Out, Ticket To Ride, Baby's In Black, Rain, Paperback Writer, Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane, Day In The Life, Hello Goodbye, Lady Madonna, Hey Bulldog, Hey Jude, Revolution, Blackbird (Apple's first promo film), and Something, all for The Beatles. Other videos included: Alfie by Cilla Black, Shindig Goes To London, Hullabaloos, Where The Action Is, just to name a few. All the film projects for John & Yoko were actually made by Tony Bramwell. Other film projects include Cilla At The Savoy, The Feria De Seville a bullfighting film, Roxy Music, The Osmonds, Neil Sedaka, The Jam, The Cure, The Who and more.
Tony can been seen and heard on these releases:

"There are interviews with everyone from Apple recording artist Jackie Lomax (whose “Sour Milk Sea” remains a great lost single) to staffer Tony Bramwell (excellently sniffy about the pissed and stoned Apple press office). David Peel is here, an unexpected counterculture survivor. More poignantly, so are two of Badfinger, the band whose career deserves (and has) its own documentary. Talking heads are relevant and informed, there is decent archive – and even some Beatle and related music. Best of all this is a really long DVD."
