Podcast: It’s Yesterday, it’s now, but the Beatles don’t exist. Neither do Oasis. Or cigarettes or Coca-Cola for some reason. But what about wit, humour and empathy? Can Richard Curtis and Danny Boyle fit them in? And who’s gonna live forever? Robin Gibson and Sean Gollogly take the long and winding road to the dark heart of the long and winding romcom. Contains karaoke.
