The Beatles: Get Back - trailer for Fab Four documentary released with unseen video

ITV News Correspondent Neil Connery explains what Beatles fans can expect from the documentary

Unseen footage of The Beatles has been released in a trailer for an eagerly awaited documentary about the British rock band.

The three-part documentary series, titled 'The Beatles: Get Back', will feature nearly 60 hours of video of the Fab Four shot in January 1969 and more than 150 hours of unheard audio, most of which has been locked in a vault for more than half a century.

The series, directed by Oscar winner Sir Peter Jackson, will be released on the Disney+ streaming service in November.

Beatles fans will get to see John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Sir Ringo Starr in their creative process as they write and rehearse 14 new songs for their first live show in more than two years.

The tracks were originally intended for release on an accompanying live album.

The series also features The Beatles’ last live performance as a group, where they performed in a rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row. The band split up in 1970.

In the trailer, Sir Paul is heard joking: “It’s going to be such a comical thing like in 50 years’ time. They broke up because Yoko sat on an amp.”

The original 1969 documentary maker Michael Lindsay-Hogg is also heard saying: “The documentary is just grinding to a halt”.

“Grinding to a halt?" Lennon replies, "I think it’s taking off!”

Producers involved in the making of the documentary include Sir Paul, Starr, Lennon’s former wife Yoko Ono and Harrison’s former wife Olivia.
