Now four years on since it was first announced way back in 2007, Martin Scorsese's appropriately expansive documentary "George Harrison: Living In The Material World" is now ready to be shown to the world, and if this trailer is any indication, it's going to be a must see.

Boasting interviews from friends colleagues and collaborators including Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, George Martin, Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Tom Petty, Phil Spector, Ringo Starr and Jackie Stewart, the roughly three-and-a-half hour documentary will dig deep into Harrison's life and career from The Beatles through to his years as a solo artist, his work as a film producer, a philanthropist and more. The scope and size is no surprise especially given the similarly detailed treatment Scorsese gave Bob Dylan in "No Direction Home" and certainly, everyone from die-hard Beatles and Harrison fans to the casual observer will be well served by the doc.

"Living In The Material World" will unspool at the New York Festival and hit HBO shortly thereafter in a two-part presentation on October 5th and 6th. Check out the trailer below along with the poster (which will also be the cover the companion book that will be released in conjunction with the documentary). [Yahoo/The Beatles]

    i believe the Dylan doc was PBS, so a bit different story.

    Since I don't subscribe to HBO, my question is, when will it be coming to DVD?

    If I remember correctly, the Dylan HBO documentary was on DVD just a week or two after it aired on the network. Hopefully this is similar. I don't why it wouldn't be, because HBO still gets a cut I'm sure of DVD sales, so they don't really benefit from waiting.

    Word is there will be details released soon about a companion soundtrack...We may get some Harrison rarities and outtakes.
