History channel chronicles The Beatles


What is there to say about The Beatles that hasn't been said before? Probably not much, but the History channel hopes to show us something new with the upcoming documentary "The Beatles on Record."

As arguably the most prolific band in music history, the Fab Four continue to be among the most popular, well-loved music and generation-spanning music.  So the History channel has taken it upon itself to chronicle the rise of The Beatles and all of the recordings done at the Abbey Road Studio in the documentary.

"The Beatles on Record" will explore the behind-the-scenes world of recording, ranging from The Beatles' first album, 1963's Please Please ME, all the way to 1969's Abbey Road.  John Lennon, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Ringo Star and longtime Beatles' producer Sir George Martin provide all the film's narration. 

Along with rare footage and never-before-heard conversation snippets, "The Beatles on Record" will feature over 60 of the Fab Four's songs. The documentary is directed by Bob Smeaton, who also the Beatles Anthology series.

"The Beatles on Record" will air on History on Wednesday, Nov. 25 at 10 p.m.
