How Old The Beatles Were During Get Back Sessions

Sunday, May 19, 2024

 The Beatles: Get Back doc shows the band's final days recording Let It Be and culminates in their iconic rooftop concert.
The series dispels rumors of infighting but doesn't shy away from tensions among the band members.
John Lennon's shift towards activism and McCartney's struggles to keep the band together are highlighted in the documentary.

Peter Jackson's ambitious The Beatles: Get Back documentary series premiered on HBO in 2021. It had a total of three episodes, with eight hours of footage showing how The Beatles' final album Let It Be was made. Much of Get Back's archival footage has been pulled (and restored) directly from Michael Lindsay-Hogg's 1970 documentary about the album's making. Originally conceived as a feature film, The Beatles: Get Back is now dedicated to Hogg's original work, which forms the backbone of Jackson's poignant documentary.
