The Beatles had their full day of filming for their second feature film Help!, beginning the 8.30am-5.30pm schedule that was maintained throughout their two-week Bahamanian shoot.
The group was filmed cycling on the lengthy Interfield Road, near to Nassau International Airport on New Providence Island. They filmed a number of other scenes on the road, which was later renamed John F Kennedy Drive, in subsequent days.
