The two surviving members of the Beatles joined guests at a film screening to remember the late George Harrison.

Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr joined Harrison's widow Olivia at the event in California.

The screening was of a documentary filmed at a star-studded tribute concert held in London last year.

Also at the movie première was John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton and Sir Paul's wife Heather Mills.

The tribute concert at London's Royal Albert Hall included performances by Sir Paul and Starr as well as by Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Billy Preston and members of Monty Python.

Harrison died in November 2001
Guitarist Clapton was the musical director of Concert for George, which was attended by 5,000 people, while Harrison's friend Ravi Shankar also composed part of the show.

Harrison died in Los Angeles in 2001 after losing his fight against cancer.

Concert for George, which is being released on DVD in November, is being shown at selected US cinemas in October.

Harrison's son Dhani and widow Olivia are donating the film's takings to the Material World Charitable Foundation, established by the guitarist in 1973.
