Liam Gallagher, Paul Weller and Paul McCartney last night attended the premiere of a restored version of Magical Mystery Tour at the BFI Southbank in London.

Gallagher was accompanied by his son, Gene, and his Beady Eye and former Oasis bandmate Gem Archer.

Also in attendance was Beatles producer George Martin's son Giles, who tweeted: "First screening of magical mystery tour, I sat next to Paul. It sounded fantastic – well I didn't get prodded so I think we got away with it!"

A project spearheaded by Paul McCartney, Magical Mystery Tour was a TV movie that largely baffled audiences on its first screening in December 1967. The newly restored film, alongside a new documentary, titled Arena: The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour Revisited, featuring previously unseen footage of the band, will show on BBC2 this weekend (October 6).

As a teaser to the documentary, The Space, a digital arts service from the Arts Council in conjunction with the BBC, have put some extra footage of the 1967 film shoot online. In one piece, The Beatles visit a fish and chip shop in Taunton. You can see stills from the same here
