Composing the Beatles Songbook - Lennon and McCartney 1966 - 1970 is an independent documentary film that reviews the partnership, music and impact of Lennon and McCartney as composers during this hugely creative period. From the first bars of Eleanor Rigby to the closing Abbey Road song-cycle, this film shows how they barely put a step wrong in making the most joyous music the world had ever witnessed. Drawing on rare footage, classic performances and penetrating revelations from friends of the pair, Beatles academics and musicologists, we here discover the true story of how those classic songs were written. With contributions from friends Barry Miles, Klaus Voorman and Maureen Cleaves; musicians Alan Moore and Chris Ingham; journalists Robert Christgau [Village Voice] and Anthony De Curtis [Rolling Stone]; authors Johnny Rogan, Pete Doggett, Steve Turner, and Nigel Williamson and broadcaster Paul Gambaccini.
