The Beatles in Peter Jackson’s ‘The Beatles: Get Back.’

This week, The Nose was a frying pan.

The Beatles: Get Back is a three-part Disney+ docuseries produced and directed by Peter Jackson. It’s made from material originally captured for a 1970 documentary of the making of Let It Be. Jackson has called it “a documentary about a documentary.”

Originally conceived as a feature film, The Beatles: Get Back was ultimately released last weekend as three episodes totaling nearly eight hours.

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:


  • Steve Metcalf - Director emeritus of the University of Hartford’s Presidents’ College
  • Irene Papoulis - Teaches writing at Trinity College
  • Brian Slattery - Arts editor for the New Haven Independent and a producer at WNHH radio
