Apple TV+’s New Doc Series

Two drastically different docu-series — The Me You Can’t See and 1971: The Year That Music Changed Everythingdebut this Friday, May 21, on Apple TV+.

The Me You Can’t See

Two months after his wife Meghan opened up about her mental health problems during a CBS Oprah Winfrey special, Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, has teamed up with Winfrey on this five-episode series examining the current state of mental health in the pandemic era.

Guests on the series will include Lady Gaga, Glenn Close, the San Antonio Spurs’ DeMar DeRozan, the Phoenix Suns’ Langston Galloway, mental health advocate Zak Williams, Olympic boxer Virginia “Ginny” Fuchs and celebrity chef Rashad Armstead.

1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything

Fifty years later, this eight-episode series — from the Oscar winners behind 2015’s Amy Winehouse documentary Amy — posits that 1971 was a particularly pivotal year in music history, focusing on songs and artists still being listened to today. These include The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, The Who, Joni Mitchell and Lou Reed.

Apple+ says its “deep dive rich with archival footage and interviews,” will “show how the musical icons of the time were influenced by the changing tides of history, and, in turn, how they used their music to inspire hope, change and the culture around them.”

Apple TV+ costs $4.99 per month, with a seven-day free trial. It can be streamed on, or via the Apple TV app for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod Touch/Mac, and non-Apple platforms.
