US TV station HBO will air a documentary about late Beatle George Harrison in October, it has been announced. The film, produced by Martin Scorsese and Harrison’s wife Olivia, features home movies, interviews and other previously unseen footage.

Says Scorsese: “When I was offered the chance to make this picture, I jumped at it. Spending time with Olivia, interviewing so many of George’s closest friends, reviewing all that footage, some of it never seen before, and listening to all of that magnificent music – it was a joy, and an experience I’ll always treasure”.

An accompanying book containing items from Harrison’s archive, including letters and diaries, will be published in September.
