George Harrison’s story is coming to the small screen courtesy of HBO. Martin Scorsese’s two-part documentary “George Harrison: Living in the Material World” begins with the late rocker’s rise to fame with The Beatles. Paul McCartney was on hand for the film’s premiere in London. He told reporters at Sunday’s event that George is still “sorely missed by us all,” and added that whenever he sees something relating to Harrison, “it brings back more memories than you would believe.” Ringo Starr, John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono, and The Beatles’ producer George Martin also attended the screening, along with Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher, and “Monty Python’s” Terry Gilliam. HBO is debuting “George Harrison: Living in the Material World” this week. Part one airs on Wednesday and part two will be shown on Thursday, starting at 9:00 p.m. Eastern both nights.
