(Watch) Peter Jackson’s Groundbreaking, Emotional Beatles Video for “Now and Then” Will Have You in Tears


Here’s the official video for “Now and Then.” The audio version on YouTube is up to around 5 million views.

The video combines old and new footage of the Beatles and will leave you in tears. It’s a brilliant ending to the most amazing modern music career of any group or single artist.

Jackson has managed to sum up the group and reunite them in a joyful and sorrowful way.

Director Peter Jackson says in a supplied interview:
“Luckily we found a collection of unseen outtakes in the vault, where The Beatles are relaxed, funny and rather candid. These become the spine of our middle section, and we wove the humour into some footage shot in 2023. The result is pretty nutty and provided the video with much needed balance between the sad and the funny.”
