Every TV news and current affairs program across the globe did stories on this.
George allowed a select number of networks to film just one rehearsal song - "Taxman" and then following the rehearsal George did a few select interviews.
First interview was with Reuters who made their footage, of the rehearsal and an interview, available to many news
agencies around the World who edited the footage to fit into their broadcasts.
