McCartney 3, 2, 1 is a six-episode documentary series that sees Paul McCartney sitting down – and standing up – with producer Rick Rubin to trawl through his astonishing musical legacy.

A new trailer concentrates on his time in some little beat combo called The Beatles, but the series will also delve into the music that McCartney made following the seminal band’s break-up, both solo and with Wings.

With this, plus Peter Jackson’s now three-part The Beatles: Get Back due in November, it really is a great year for curious fans of the Fab Four.

McCartney 3, 2, 1 is set to air from July 16.
