It was 50 years ago today, on August 8, 1969, that the world’s most famous band stepped out from London’s EMI Recording Studios to stride, single-file, across the black and white stripes of Abbey Road’s nearby zebra crossing.

By hand, frame by frame and without the use of automated software, The Beatles' 1968 Pop Art masterpiece Yellow Submarine has been digitally restored and re-released to huge acclaim.
 
The delicate, hand-drawn artwork that revolutionised animation in its day has been brought back to its original condition, revealing it to be as thrilling a psychedelic odyssey as it was at the time of its original release.
 
Yellow Submarine was the first great, non-Disney animated feature and it's as if the music, themes, surreal humour, artwork and writing have all just been born again in 4k digital resolution.
