Sgt Pepper's 40th Anniversary
27-29 December 2100-2200
30 December 1400-1500
In four shows over four days, original Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick heads back to Abbey Road studios to demonstrate the innovative techniques used to record the legendary Sgt Pepper back in 1967.
He's joined by musicians including Kaiser Chiefs, Oasis, Pete Doherty and Russell Brand(!), who record their own interpretations of the album's twelve tracks, using the original analogue 4-track equipment.
We hear from all the artists about the importance of Sgt Pepper and listen in on the recording process to see just how different it is for them.
This is an extended version of the show originally broadcast on Radio 2.
