It's 50 years since The Beatles headed to Abbey Road for an infamous 12 hour session, during which they produced one of their most popular albums, the titular Please Please Me. In this BBC4 and BBC Radio 2 special, leading musicians will attempt to recreate that session, delivering 11 songs in the same timescale, in the same studio.Hosting for the day at Abbey Road is Stuart Maconie, while engineer Richard Langham and Beatles' press officer Tony Barrow (who were both present at the original session) are on hand to give us a little insight along the way.
