      Men at Lunch
      In New York City, 1932, a photograph, "Lunch atop a Skyscraper," is taken during the construction of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. In it, eleven workmen are taking their lunch break while casually perched along a steel girder. For 80 years, the identity of the eleven men and the photographer that immortalized them remained a mystery: their stories, lost in time, subsumed by the fame of the image itself. Then, at the start of the 21st century, the photograph finally began to give up some of its secrets.

      Good Ol' Freda
      Freda Kelly was just a shy Liverpudlian teenager when she was asked to work for a local band hoping to make it big - the Beatles. Freda had faith in the Beatles from the beginning, and the Beatles had faith in her. As many people came in and out of the band's circle, Freda remained a staple because of her unfaltering loyalty and dedication. As the Beatles' devoted secretary and friend, Freda was there as history unfolded, witness to the evolution of the most important rock band in history.
