The long and winding road to the release of Ron Howard’s new Beatles documentary is almost over: The Beatles: Eight Days a Week — The Touring Years will hit theaters on Sept. 16 and stream on Hulu the following day. For those Beatles fans who have seen the first trailer but would like some additional Help! in sneaking a peek at this retrospective of the Fab Four’s rapid rise to fame, you’ve come to the right place.

In an exclusive clip, the documentary explores the band’s threat to not play a gig in Jacksonvillle, Florida if the audience would be segregated. “We play to people, that’s what we did,” explains Ringo. “We didn’t play to, like, those people or that people, you know what I mean? We just played to people.”

Eight Days a Week, which was directed by Howard, was produced with the cooperation of Ringo, Paul,Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison. The film offers up rare and exclusive footage of the Beatles during the early to mid-’60s, as they graduated from club gigs in Liverpool and Hamburg to much larger venues in Europe and America.
