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 »

Beatles forever!
4 February 2002 | by (Cheshire, England) – See all my reviews

The Beatles anthology fan-tastic perfect for any Beatles fan, i could watch the Beatles anthology over and over again and not get tired of it. Very interesting throughout with the Beatles themselves talking about what it was like being the center of Beatle mania. You must watch it if you havent already, if you have watched it again! 10 out of 10!
