Thanksgiving weekend provided a massive gift for Beatles fans as director Peter Jackson unveiled The Beatles: Get Back, his epic 8-hour docuseries about the recording sessions that culminated in the original Let It Be album and film released in 1970. With access to 150 hours of unheard audio and 60 hours of unseen footage, Jackson almost completely re-writes conventional wisdom about the breakup of the band and opens an intimate window into the group's relationships, creative process, and late '60s British pop culture.
