Anyone catch this?! I was planning to DVR it by spaced.

I am also trying to figure out when they are re-showing it...and the Discovery Channel website is NOT being helpful...

Supposed to have rare footage and interviews...

I saw it. It was good. Lots of home movies, etc. Good interview clips. The only thing that I didn't like is that they played no Beatles music; there was some piano-tinkling background soundtrack which was pretty annoying to hear when you're seeing previously-unseen-footage of them playing live in '66 or something. I reckon they couldn't get the rights to play any Beatles music. Too bad.

Anyway, it was on the Discovery Times channel, one of the like 12 Discovery channels. (Which is as annoying as having umpteen Green Lanterns). I don't see it in their upcoming schedule, but I'm sure it will come around again.
