Peter Jackson explains how 'Beatles: Get Back' shatters myths about group's final days

Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson has just finished what he calls his dream job, as the famous fan of The Beatles edited almost 60 hours of footage of the band shot half a century ago during the recording of "Let It Be."

The result is "Get Back," a miniseries for Disney+ that premieres on Thanksgiving Day, and in this extended edition of "The Sitdown with Sandy Kenyon," he explains how the story he discovered sifting through those historic film reels was not the one he was expecting.

"You actually are journeying into 1969, and you're there and so it does feel like a time machine," Jackson told Kenyon. "Plus, it's fly-on-the-wall. It's so intimate. You've never seen The Beatles like this before."

You can watch the episode here, but if you want to enjoy a better experience, did you know you can catch "The Sitdown with Sandy Kenyon" on your television set?
