Sgt. Pepper to Be Celebrated
PBS will join the 50th anniversary celebration surrounding the Beatles‘ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band next month by airing a BBC documentary offering a look behind the scenes of the album’s creation and cultural legacy.
Titled Sgt. Pepper’s Musical Revolution and scheduled for a June 3 debut, the hour-long special promises “material never before accessible outside of Abbey Road Studios, including recordings of studio chat between band members and isolated instrumental and vocal tracks” while revealing “the nuts and bolts of how the album came together” and offering “insights into the choices made by the Beatles and George Martin.”
