After a lengthy Covid-induced delay, a two-year editing period and months of teasers, Peter Jackson’s Beatles documentary – The Beatles: Get Back – has finally arrived, and the nine-plus hour musical masterpiece is already receiving rave reviews.

That shouldn’t come as a shock, though. The three-part series is assembled entirely from an archive of 55 hours of unseen footage shot by Michael Lindsey-Hogg and 140 hours of unheard audio tapes, and follows the Fab Four during the 1969 recording sessions that lead to their last-ever studio album, Let It Be.
