This documentary on Abbey Road Studios is a must-see

Abbey Road Studios is the most famous recording studio in the world. Sitting just north of the famed zebra crossing in the St. John’s Wood area of London, it’s been in continuous operation since 1931. In that time, some of the most enduring music of all time has been created within its walls.

I’ve had the awesome privilege of touring through Abbey Road three times. Entering the place is like walking into a magical, holy place. The history associated with the building is staggering.

There’s finally a documentary about the place, directed by Mary McCartney, the daughter of a guy who’s used the loo outside of Studio 2 a few times. The doc, If These Walls Could Sing, is now available on Disney+.
