Taxi Driver and Goodfellas director Martin Scorese will screen his George Harrison documentary, Living In The Material World on HBO this October.

Co-produced by the former Beatle’s widow, Olivia, the documentary will feature exclusive interviews with Eric Clapton, George Martin and Yoko Ono, as well as including homie movies and song clips.

Scorcese has a knack for killer music documentaries, having already produced The Rolling Stones: A Shining Light.

He explained why he felt the urge to document the Travelling Willburys’ member.

“George was making spiritually awake music, we all heard and felt it, and I think that was the reason that he came to occupy a very special place in our lives.”

Living In The Material World will be shown in two parts on 5th and 6th of October and will be available on DVD on October 10.
