Filming: Help!

Two scenes for Help! were filmed on this day at Twickenham Film Studios. In the first The Beatles donned disguises - including an early outing for John Lennon in granny glasses and long hair - in an airport terminal as they waited to fly to the Bahamas.

The second featured Ahme, played by Eleanor Bron, on a tank turret, which was used as part of the Salisbury Plain sequence.
