The project has been co-produced with Harrison's widow Olivia and will feature home movies and interviews with surviving members of the Beatles.

The two-part film will be shown first on US cable channel HBO in the autumn and then distributed on DVD by Lionsgate on October 10. An accompanying book, written by his late wife, will feature photographs, letters and diary extracts from his life.

Harrison died of lung cancer in 2001.
