The Beatles will release a second volume of recordings from the BBC, according to reports.

The Guardian says that a new collection featuring previously unreleased songs from the Fab Four's sessions with BBC radio in the mid-'60s is in the pipeline, with the anthology set to be the follow-up to their 1994 compilation 'Live At The BBC'.

Plans for the new set of recordings were rumbled by Beatles fansite WogBlog. They spotted a Facebook page from MCA Music in the Philippines, which is part of Universal Music, promising the new collection. The claims have not been confirmed by either The Beatles' official website or Universal's operations in the UK or US.

Earlier this week, dentist and Beatles fan Daniel Zuk has said that he plans to clone John Lennon using the DNA from one of the late musician's teeth. Zuk, who bought Lennon's tooth for £20,000 at auction in 2011, said: "If scientists think they can clone mammoths, then John Lennon could be next. To say I had a small part in bringing back one of rock's greatest stars would be mind-blowing."
