From RNZ Music, 11:55 pm on 22 June 2012

Giles Martin, son of The Beatles' producer Sir George Martin, followed in his father's footsteps to work on the Beatles compilations Live at the BBC, the Beatles Anthology series and the Love remix project with Cirque Du Soleil. In 2009, the late George Harrison's wife Oliva invited Giles to produce the music score for the film 'Living in the Material World', Martin Scorcese's documentary on George Harrison's life. 'George Harrison - Early Takes Volume 1' is the movies' companion CD, containing home demos and studio out-takes from George's solo career. For Music 101, beatles afficianardo Jeremy Ansell talks with Giles Martin about the making of the album.
