In celebration of the June 1 50th anniversary of the iconic album from The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, PBS is set to air the BBC’s Sgt. Pepper’s Musical Revolution documentary on Saturday, June 3.

The documentary takes fans inside the album’s creation and lasting impression 50 years later. According to the BBC's website, it’ll include things like outtakes, studio conversations among the Fab Four, and alternative takes on classic songs from the album. Pretty cool stuff!

Sgt. Pepper’s Musical Revolution airs Saturday, June 3 at 8 PM ET.

The anniversary’s expanded version of Sgt. Pepper’s will be released the week prior to the documentary’s PBS premiere on May 26.
