When the Beatles represented the United Kingdom during Our World, the world’s first live global TV linkup in 1967, a lot was at stake as they delivered “All You Need is Love,” a song specially written for the moment. An audience of 400 million people were watching, members of the Rolling Stones and the Who were in the studio, and the resulting recording was to be released on vinyl just days later.
But, as Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick told Uncle Joe Benson on the Ultimate Classic Rock Nights radio show, the responsibility for making it all work out fell on the shoulders of “two young kids” – himself, aged and his even younger assistant Richard Lush.
“I was in a terrible state because this thing was going to go out live and we didn’t have the technology then – backups and God knows what else,” Emerick said. “[T]he record that actually goes out and the one you see them recording, everything’s live apart from, I think, just Ringo (Starr)’s drum. The only overdub I remember doing afterwards was Ringo’s snare roll at the beginning.
By the time The Beatles got to the late 1960s, they were squabbling about a number of things. Among them, George Harrison greatly resented the lack of respect he got from John Lennon and Paul McCartney. That led to arguments with Paul and a bona fide fistfight with John in early 1969.
But the list didn’t begin to end there. John was beyond tired with Paul’s so-called “granny music” and let him know about it whenever they worked on tracks like “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer.” Meanwhile, Paul was disappointed John wouldn’t let him play on tracks like “Come Together.”
As for Ringo Starr, the Beatles’ drummer would get down on himself when he felt he wasn’t playing his best. It didn’t help that Paul and John would criticize him in the studio at these moments.
When Paul felt he had ideas for Ringo to try out on drums, he wouldn’t be shy about telling him. The Beatles’ chief engineer witnessed Paul’s “coaching” of Ringo on several occasions.
The series has since returned to Netflix with all three seasons and the Twitter account have followed up as to why it was temporarily removed.
The series sees bugs learning lessons and singing famous songs by The Beatles. The series has received multiple awards over the years and was popularised around the world when it first released in 2016 with two seasons and third season that was added in 2018.
On July 18th, 2019, the series was removed from Netflix in all regions around the world including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
It’s worth noting the Beat Bugs movie that released in 2017 called “All Together Now” remains on Netflix.

Having a father who was a Beatle certainly casts a significant shadow.
But Dhani Harrison has more than forged his own path.
The only child of the late George Harrison and his second wife Olivia has played in bands (thenewno2, Fistful of Mercy) and composed for film and TV. He's played on albums by Perry Farrell, UNKLE and Wu-Tang Clan, and he was on stage when Prince shredded the Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" at the 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony.
In 2017 Harrison, 40, released "IN///PARALLEL," his first album under his own name, and last month he put out a concert film, "IN///PARALIVE," on Facebook. And now he's touring with Jeff Lynne's ELO, opening and also joining the troupe in homage to his father and others during its rendition of the Traveling Wilburys' "Handle With Care"...

By the time The Beatles got to their White Album (1968), it didn’t take much to tell a Paul McCartney song from a John Lennon track. If you heard a throwback tune like “Honey Pie” or “Martha My Dear,” you knew you were listening to a song by Paul.
John called tracks in this vein “Paul’s granny music,” and he countered with songs like “Revolution” and “Happiness Is a Warm Gun.” But John didn’t let it go at that. When Paul insisted on running through endless takes for “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da,” John stormed out of the studio in disgust.
After the disaster of the Let It Be sessions in early ’69, The Beatles regrouped for one last studio album. That would become Abbey Road, but it wouldn’t come easy. While Paul kept asking for new takes of “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer,” several Beatles lost their patience.
John Lennon’s son Sean is fed up of fans “hijacking” his memories of his dad by telling them how important he was to them.
Sean was only five years old when John was shot and killed outside his home in New York in December 1980.
However, in an interview with Marc Maron on his WTF podcast, Sean admitted that he often finds it hurtful talking about his father to fans, as they rarely take into account that his memories are intimate family ones.
“My relationship to my dad I feel is sometimes hijacked or something and people don’t seem to consider it,” he says. “Not to be critical but for the most part, as real as their feelings are, it is a dream. What I am talking about is a physical person who taught me how to cut my food at dinner.”
Speaking about Beatles fans’ idolisation of his dad, Sean, 43, says they have “no idea” of his own feelings – however much they love his music.
