This concert includes rarely heard arrangements of Beatles favourites arranged by their producer and the man dubbed 'the 5th Beatle', Sir George Martin. Among the songs featured are Come Together, Something, Golden Slumbers, We Can Work It Out, A Hard Day's Night, She's Leaving Home, The Fool On The Hill, The Long and Winding Road and Hey Jude.
