The programme will feature an exclusive interview with producer Giles Martin (son of White Album producer and 'Fifth Beatle' George Martin) and engineer Sam Okell, who remastered the new release in stereo and 5.1 surround sound, sourced directly from the original four-track and eight-track session tapes.
