Movie Details

Before retiring, recording producer George Martin, famed for his for association with The Beatles, returned to The Beatles songbook, shaping performances by several artists not usually associated with The Beatles, and some not even recognized for their musical abilities. This documentary captures studio sessions for the recording (issued October 1998 by MCA), and also features conversations about the selected songs and concepts, as Martin works closely with his chosen talents, opening with Phil Collins (Golden Slumbers) and then moving on to Robin Williams/Bobby McFerrin (Come Together), Goldie Hawn (A Hard Day's Night), Jim Carrey (I Am the Walrus) and John Williams (Here Comes the Sun). Filmed in England, the hour-long TV documentary first aired in the U.S. November 12, 1998 on Bravo. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
