Storyline

This film examines the masterwork album by the Beatles, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, released in 1967, with its creation, themes and impact explored in turn. In addition, this film explores the summer of that year with the rise of the counter-culture and hippies for instance, and the whole notion that love and music could change the world.

Lost great documentary
21 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a gem of a documentary done for Granada TV in the UK that has unfortunately never been officially released or even re-broadcasted as far as I know. It's a well-made look at our culture circa 1967 twenty years on, all within the context of the 20th anniversary of the Beatles masterpiece Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. There's lots of great footage of bands and figures from the 60's (George Harrison comes off as the wisest of the Beatles here)with a non-judgmental look back at a pivotal time in our history that has been revised by many who have either lost the promise that era held or who were not even there at all. Yes, there was a lot of excessive drug-taking and silliness, but a lot of good came out of the best aspects of that period, and this documentary does a good job documenting it.
