It will include 55 hours of in-studio footage that was shot in early 1969 for the 1970 feature film Let It Be.
Peter Jackson was also behind the wonderful WWI documentary They Shall Never Grow Old which used advanced technologies to restore archival footage from The Great War, most of which has never been seen publicly before.
