The new series "The Beatles: Get Back" portrays technological innovation and the evolution of music production

The new narrative series is not only an incredible authentic report that reveals the elements of the most persuasive band of all time, but also a rare presentation of the force of technological advance, put at the service of the image and the recovery of the sound.

The following are eight interests on "The Beatles: Get Back" to delve into the universe of the "Fab Four" and assimilate everything that the narrative brings to the table.

Peter Jackson had access to unreleased Beatles material that was used to perform "The Beatles: Get Back"

Acclaimed New Zealand producer "Peter Jackson," known for the set of three The Lord of the Rings films and lately for his account of World War I They Will Never Get Old, is the leading individual in fifty years who have approached multimedia material. Classified in the vaults of Apple Corps, the organization that deals with all the creative and financial affairs of The Beatles.

It consists of 60 hours of film and more than 100 hours of sound material, captured during one month of January 1969, at Twickenham Studios and in the Apple Corps office studio. Both in London.

The footage had been recorded to deliver rare television live performance and was shot by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, creator of the 1970 Let It Be storytelling.

After obtaining the tapes, Jackson was very dazzled by what he saw, and took advantage of the segregating scenario of the COVID-19 pandemic to immerse himself in the material and trace a chain of accounts to structure the story.

Producer Peter Jackson says that while the material he found on the Apple Corps tapes was fascinating, he was shocked by the project and put him in a major quandary.

The opportunity to see and work with the generous lead film by Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr doing in the studio was a unique opportunity.

However, he had qualms about being important to the band's "breakup movie", considering that the group disbanded a couple of months after the unreleased recording.
