There have been many documentaries about The Beatles. After all, they are widely regarded as one of the most successful bands of all time. The Beatles created music that is still popular. They created the Brit-pop genre, followed later by Oasis, The Verve, Placebo, Space, Elastica and many others.

Eventually, the Brit-pop music genre became the backbone of British cultural movement called “Cool Britannia”. And it was all thanks to the Beatles.

Now, as we said, there have been many documentaries on their life and music. This one takes a different approach, as we hear the story of the Beatles and their sound explained by one of the best composers in Britain, Howard Goodall.

Howard is hold in high esteem in Britain. In 2009, he was named Composer of the Year. For more than 30 years, Goodall has been composing music in Britain, from musical theaters, to television and choral works. In this documentary, he takes a look at the journey and development of the Beatles. But most importantly, he analyzes their sound, and what made them sound so good and special.
