A new ITV documentary on The Beatles will uncover the stories behind their biggest songs.

Titled The Nation's Favourite Beatles Number One, it will include interviews with Beatles insiders, close friends, musicians and celebrity fans.

The documentary will look at the 27 Beatles hits that reached number one in the UK and USA.

"The Beatles are a band that have defined popular culture and music for decades and so we're thrilled to be celebrating their hits on ITV. Everyone's got a favourite Beatles number one - but which is yours and which will be the nation's?"

– ITV commissioning editor Priya Singh

The 120-minute episode has no scheduled air date yet, but will be shown before the end of the year.
