Never thought such a thing could happen while Paul and Ringo are still around. There had been rumors they didn’t want any of that unused footage to see the light of day. Let It Be hasn’t had a video release since the early 80’s. I think MTV showed it once during a Beatles weekend in the early 90’s. At least the days of insane prices for the VHS/Beta/Laserdisc are at an end.

I wish something like this could happen to many hours of documentary footage shot for The Shining and Full Metal Jacket.

“Heroes come in all sizes, and you don’t have to be a giant hero. You can be a very small hero. It’s just as important to understand that accepting self-responsibility for the things you do, having good manners, caring about other people - these are heroic acts. Everybody has the choice of being a hero or not being a hero every day of their lives.” - George Lucas

The Beatles: Get Back - A Sneak Peek from Peter Jackson’:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UocEGvQ10OE - 5 minute video from the official The Beatles youtube channel.
 

The blurb: 'Jackson said, “We wanted to give the fans of The Beatles all over the world a holiday treat, so we put together this five-minute sneak peek at our upcoming theatrical film ‘The Beatles: Get Back.’ We hope it will bring a smile to everyone’s faces and some much-needed joy at this difficult time.”

Acclaimed filmmaker Peter Jackson’s “The Beatles: Get Back” is a unique cinematic experience that takes audiences back in time to The Beatles’ intimate recording sessions during a pivotal moment in music history…’
 

Very much looking forward to this - hopefully at the theatres in August… (if life is a little more ‘back to normal’ and safe by then 😃)

Excited to see it. But I’m so disappointed in the awful DNR and AI upscaling they’ve done. It looks absolutely horrendous. Waxy, artificial, and very unsettling. Plus it’s cropped to 16:9. Such a shame, because I’m sure the raw source looks 100 times better. Oh well. Of course I’m still gonna watch every second of it though, it’s the Beatles. 😃 Glad we get to see it in any form.

There was this year’s, Mccartney 3,2,1 which I approached warily.
McCartney has had a history of attempting to retell events.
This brief series was quite well done, with host Rick Rubin keeping the topics on the music.
Song construction, retakes, editing, basslines.
While aimed at musicians, anyone can follow along, and the minimalist filming works well.

The Guardian came up with an intriguing 15 minute video & article as part of the PR content for the coming Get Back release…
 

The Beatles, Get Back and London: on the trail of a timeless story’:-

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fw71ucAUi2U - a 15 minute video at The Guardian youtube channel.

The blurb:-

‘In early 1969, John, Paul, George and Ringo worked on a project in London that would result in an amazing performance on a West End rooftop, and some of their most-loved songs. The story is captured in the new documentary series Get Back. In a film specially commissioned by Apple Corps, John Harris and John Domokos follow the Beatles’ steps, get immersed in their archive, and do what the Fab Four’s film-makers did – talk to the public.’

 

‘Annoying snobs was part of the fun’: Paul McCartney and more on the Beatles’ rooftop farewell’:-

As Peter Jackson’s TV series Get Back recasts the Fab Four’s final days in a more positive light, the ex-Beatle remembers the responses to their historic gig above the streets of London

Nice one, V. I’ll search that out and give it watch.
