The Beatles by The Beatles -- their words, their music.
The Beatles Anthology was originally shown on TV in 1995, when John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr told The Beatles' story for the first time. The Anthology project was a worldwide sensation spawning not only the TV series and a bestselling book, but also three double-CD sets that each topped the album charts in the USA, plus the songs "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love" - the first new Beatles recordings in 25 years.

The Beatles Anthology DVD box set features all of the original eight TV episodes that candidly revealed the story of how the four lads from Liverpool changed everything... but it now features the final chapter; never-released footage of the last jam session of Paul, George and Ringo, playing non-Beatles material.

All 10 hours of the original Anthology series are contained on four DVD discs, plus an additional disc with 81 minutes of Special Features. Nearly all of the material included on this 5th disc has never been seen before.

For years, rumour has been rife among fans of the existence of intimate footage of Paul, George and Ringo jamming together during breaks in the making of the Anthology. This session and other get togethers were filmed over a 12-month period when the three Beatles met in private and at Abbey Road studios. It includes the trio warmly remembering personal moments from their early days, reflecting on how they made their music and footage of them shot in the studio as they recorded "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love."

Technically, the DVDs offer a spectacular audio/visual experience, featuring re-graded picture quality and new audio mastering including 5.1-surround sound and a new stereo PCM soundtrack.

Editor's Note
A deluxe, multi-volume chronicle of the complete history of the Beatles, THE BEATLES ANTHOLOGY is the definitive documentary, featuring 10 hours of footage culled from interviews, live concerts, studio sessions, feature films, home movies and more. Twenty-five years after the Beatles' breakup, Paul, George, and Ringo reunited to offer new perspectives on their lives and their bitter 1970 separation. ANTHOLOGY traces the roots of the group with striking archival footage and photographs. The collection offers a wealth of unreleased early Beatles material, some of it long presumed lost and some previously available only on bootlegs--from pre-Ringo practice sessions to early-'60s tracks with fabbed-up versions of pop standards like "Ain't She Sweet" and "Besame Mucho." The live side of the band is well represented too, by such unforgettable items as Ringo tearing through "I Wanna Be Your Man" and "Boys" at a 1964 TV taping, and John ripping into "Twist & Shout" at the band's 1963 Royal Command Performance.
