The two new songs, "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love", were originally John Lennon demos. The three surviving Beatles added instrumentation to the demos and released the songs as singles in conjunction with the release of the special. In addition, John hadn't filled in the middle eight section of the demo for "Free As A Bird", so the surviving Beatles wrote a new section for that, which, according to Paul, was one of the reasons for choosing the song. It allowed them some input.

The performance of "All You Need Is Love" from the TV special Our World (1967) was originally in black and white but was colorized for the purpose of this documentary. Some other bits of black and white footage have been colorized, all of which use photos from the period as a reference for the colorization.
