George Harrison Documentary Set for Broadcast

1015

HBO is set to air Martin Scorsese’s George Harrison: Living In the Material World, 
a film was produced by Scorsese, Olivia Harrison, and Nigel Sinclair. The film traces Harrison’s life from his musical beginnings in Liverpool through his life as a musician, philanthropist, and a filmmaker, weaving together interviews with Harrison and his closest friends, performances, home movies, and photographs.  Much of the material has never been seen or heard by the public.

The film includes interviews with Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, George Martin, Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Tom Petty, Phil Spector, Ringo Starr and Jackie Stewart.  They speak honestly and frankly about George’s many talents and contradictions. The documentary will debut October 5 and 6 on HBO.
