Impossible Way Of Life started this petition to Peter Jackson and

During the 2020 promotional campaign for the highly anticipated Beatles “Get Back” film, director Peter Jackson, of Lord of The Rings fame, repeatedly claimed that, in the film, footage of The Beatles’ famous concert in 1969 on the rooftop of Apple Studios would finally be shown in its entirety. 

Although the 42 min duration of the concert performance is presented in “Get Back”, there are still numerous cuts to reaction on the streets of London. Some of these edits greatly muffle the sound of The Beatles songs and mask the visual elements of the performance. Far from feeling like we were witness to the entire concert, this rather felt like a lengthy replica of the original “Let It Be” documentary, from which the footage originally came. 

We ask that Peter Jackson and the powers that be finally release the tapes of the rooftop concert with uninterrupted footage of the band performing their 42 min set. One camera angle is acceptable assuming all four Beatles are in frame. We realize that footage of Billy Preston may be too much to ask for but none the less would be greatly appreciated. 

We understand that, from a documentary filmmaking perspective, it would seem appealing to show the cultural impact of the concert by way of reaction at street level, This approach, however, has already been taken in the past and we ask that you finally give a world of Beatles fans what they want and release the concert footage. Perhaps a DVD release with bonus features would be an appropriate way to do so, but we will leave the format to your discretion.

We would also very much love to see the footage of The Beatles recording the take of “Get Back” that eventually became the single. This too was teased in the “Get Back” film.
