Sir George Martin BBC documentary to be aired over Easter

GIU – A BBC Arena documentary on the life of Sir George Martin, Britain’s most celebrated music producer, is due to air on Monday April 25th on BBC 2 at 9:00 p.m. (UK time).

Best known for his work with The Beatles, the 90-minute documentary is an intimate portrait of Sir George’s life and was partly filmed in Montserrat.  In January 2011, a two-man BBC crew visited the
island with Sir George and his wife to finalise work on the documentary.

The Martins have been associated with Montserrat for more than 30 years and the crew said they could not tell the story of his life without featuring the island.  The documentary features several locations on the island including Olveston House, Sir George Martin’s residence, which was first built to house band members for stars like Elton John who were recording at Martin’s Air Studios in the 80s.
