New interview with Michael Lindsay-Hogg mainly about the rooftop. Has some interesting observations on it. I liked this comment on the suggestion to play on the roof:
The Beatles sort of pawed at the idea. If you gave them an idea, it was like throwing meat into a lion's cage — they'd sniff and paw at it and throw it at each other, then that piece of meat came back in the end, but was different from what you put in the cage.
And he has this to say on a re-release of the film:
You'd have to ask Apple about that, but I'm pretty sure something will be happening for a variety of reasons I can't go into at the moment. It's kind of something we've all been talking about for quite a while and has gone through several iterations, but I think probably in the next 18 months, it will come out again in some form, or altered form, because people have weirdly been calling for it [to be re-released] for some time.

Did John and Ringo not wear coats to 3 Savile Row that day? Why did they have to borrow coats?
Let us not kid ourselves... The Beatles always needed help with presentation... wasn't Brian Epstein's biggest influence on them not in this department?... remember them god awful cowboy boots that they wore in Hamburg? or how about them, uh, whatever you call them pants that they wore at Larry Parnes' audition!... it was about Fashion, not Function... the cameras were rolling, remember? it's not like anybody down below would notice their threads...:-)

I think it may be a myth that John and Ringo wore borrowed coats - I expect they were wearing their own coats.
This post seems to provide a fair assessment:

Savile Row was their workplace at the time... My workplace of 75+ employees (probably comparable in size) is never at a shortage of miscellaneous coats hanging (sometimes lying) around... perfectly conceivable that someone said: "hey, put this red one on it'll look Fab!"... by the way, isn't that the same coat that John's wearing in the audience during The Rolling Stones' 'Rock 'N' Roll Circus'? I always thought that it was his coat, no? Seems as though he made a habit of wearing Yoko's coat...:-)
