Narrated entirely by the band members and their longtime producer, Sir George Martin, the project boasts over 60 songs, rare footage and images from the Beatles' archives and never-before-heard outtakes of the band in conversation during its original recording sessions. 'The Beatles on Record' also promises a close look at the creative process behind each of its Abbey Road-recorded masterpieces.
Chronicling the Beatles' remarkable recording journey, from 1962's 'Please Please Me' to 1970's 'Abbey Road,' the documentary explores the group's evolution as musicians, how they matured as songwriters, worked together and created a body of work that continues to endure over the course of just eight short years.
The documentary is directed by Bob Smeaton, who helmed the landmark 'Beatles Anthology' series and created mini-documentaries for the band's recently remastered albums on CD. Following its debut, the special is slated for repeat airings at later dates across A&E's networks.
