It seemed genuine to me also. I just feel that since George mentioned he wasn't too good at improvising on the spot and it all being filmed put him in a bad light compared to how Paul & John were just rolling along. Seemed as though George was just struggling with the process, but you'd think having spent all those years writing songs together, that they would have had the process down by then. That's why it makes me think the filming of it played a huge part of all that.My 2 cents ---
I also thought this could have been staged, I guess we're all looking at it through today's reality TV lens. But then they had the secret recording of John and Paul from the flower pot. It seemed they were being fairly critical of each other, and spoke about their impact on the relationship with Paul. That conversation seemed genuine (at least at first listen), and made me think that it couldn't have been staged. Also, some of the reactions and looks made by George during rehearsals looked like he was not enjoying himself, and I personally felt that I would have also been put off by Paul's controlling every move he made during some of the practice sessions.
