Beatles fans were disappointed last year when director Peter Jackson announced that his long-awaited Beatles documentary film Get Back wouldn’t be released in time for the 50th anniversary of the Let It Be album and film. Get Back is the director’s edit of more than 60 hours of film footage and 150 hours of audio, most of which had never been seen or heard before.

The footage and audio were captured between January 2-31, 1969, at Twickenham Film Studios and the basement recording studio at Apple Corps in London. The footage also includes the Beatles’ legendary final 42-minute live performance on the rooftop of the Apple Corps building on January 30.
