I don't fully understand why this film has been kept back for so long. It had a full cinema release and has been broadcast worldwide on television at some stage over the years. Most people know what the film contains and overall, it doesn't harm the 'Beatle Image' in any way. If anything, it's just a period piece by now. It's certainly 'a must have' for all fans and Apple should be thankfull that the 1969 film will generate so much revenue. Talking about television, it's interesting to note that, at least in the UK, no company has broadcasted the film for a long time!
