The Beatles: Get Back preview

Get Back is directed by the Peter Jackson, who was behind the acclaimed Lord of the Rings trilogy. If you're a fan of The Beatles, you're probably already familiar with the 1970 film Let It Be, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg. It covers the band rehearsing and recording songs for their same-titled album – for which Lindsay-Hogg filmed hours of video.

For Get Back, Jackson got access to not only 60 hours of unseen footage from back then, but also more than 150 hours of unheard audio. The footage has been fully restored and the series promises to offer a well-rounded portrait of the band, warts and all.

The doco showcases The Beatles' creative process, following them as they attempt to write 14 new songs against a nearly impossible deadline. While tensions were high (George Harrison even quit the band for a few days), their friendship prevailed and their spirit of collaboration will be in full display in this highly anticipated doco.

Get Back received the stamp of approval from the Beatles themselves. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are producers, along with John Lennon and George Harrison's widows – Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison. The docu-series features footage of recording sessions and songs from the band's final 2 albums Abbey Road and Let It Be, as well as talks between bandmates and the rooftop concert on London's Savile Row.

This is a bona fide musical event. You might want to clear your schedule.
