A documentary showing both how The Beatles made music together, and how they split up. Hundreds of hours of raw footage was condensed into the final product. The rooftop performance ending the film remains a rock-n-roll archetype.

Did You Know?
Digitally re-mastered by Apple Corps in 1992 from the original 16mm negative for a planned video re-release, however this was canceled at the last minute. In 1997 a UK company, VCI, announced plans to issue this remastered version again in England, which would have been the first time the film had appeared on video in the UK. However it was again withdrawn at the eleventh hour. Clips of the remastered footage, as well as several outtakes, can be seen in The Beatles Anthology
(1995). The restored footage was also used for "The Beatles 1+" video compilation in 2015, and underwent a further image and audio restoration. This would mark the first time the restored footage would be seen in High Definition. See more
Due to the 2 camera technique used to film most of the scenes, during much of the performances the audio does not match up with the performers. One such example is during the Suzy Parker segment, and again during I Got a Feeling, though this scene was filmed using 5 cameras. See more
I'd like to say thank you on behalf of the group and ourselves, and I hope we pass the audition.
There are bootleg tapes that exist of some footage not used in the final release, including a moment where Peter Sellers visits the band. See more
