George Harrison: Living in the Material World

George Harrison’s widow Olivia Harrison talks about his life, from his guitar-obsessed boyhood in Liverpool to his astonishing Beatles years to his days as an independent musician, movie producer, and bohemian squire. George Harrison: Living in the Material World  includes a record of Harrison’s deep interest in Indian music, a trove of photographs, and stories and reminiscences from Harrison’s friends, including Eric Clapton, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and others.
