The Beatles on the Rooftop examines the events of the group's last year, beginning roughly with the sessions filmed for what became the Let It Be film (which famously ended with their rooftop performance) and concluded with the issue of Abbey Road - the four members going their separate ways - John's request for a "divorce" - and the "Paul is dead" rumors. Were the Beatles really tired of being the Fab Foursome, or were they taking time away before other events changed the dynamic irrevocably?
