Trivia

The idea for this retrospective first came up in 1970. Apple Crops collected as much archive footage of the band as they could from around the world. Neil Aspinall then assembled a 90 minute documentary tentatively titled "The Long and Winding Road". Plains for the completion lay dormant however until 1980 when all four of the former members of the Beatles agreed to a television special which was to have featured a mini-concert at its conclusion. The project was to have been broadcasted sometime in the early 80's. However these plains where interrupted when John Lennon was murdered on December 8, 1980. See more »

A true treasure for any true Beatlemaniac
14 March 2002 | by (Helsingborg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Amazing, I see the four figures on the TV screen and as usual when I see them they I get very concentrated. The interviews are outstanding and all the questions are satisfactory(to say the least) answered.

Paul, Ringo and the late John and George are so good that you wish that you were born in the fifties just so that you could see this band perform live. New things that I did not know of was said mostly about Ringo but some of the others too.

And the music is not so bad either
