New Apple documentary coming up

The 2012 documentary.
British television company Sky Arts has a documentary in the making, all about The Beatles' company, Apple Corps Ltd. Of course, the company has been profiled in documentaries before, like the 2 hours and 42 minutes Strange Fruit: The Beatles' Apple Records from 2012 (see review). Not to mention The Beatles' own three part Apple documentary, which is available on YouTube.
Still, one hopes that a new look at the company may tell more about Apple's other divisions - and perhaps follows the company into our own era. Already they have filmed a wealth of great interviews and performances but no celebrity talking heads, they say - they are only interviewing people who were there at the time...so no Elvis Costello, Eddie Izzard or Sigourney Weaver! The documentary is due for broadcast in the UK some time in 2017, hopefully also internationally, but whether it will be released to on DVD/Blu-ray is still not decided upon.

Wonder if they'll include any Allen Klein interviews or footage?
At least it will be free of celebrity idiots like Izzard etc....
