This was The Beatles’ first day in Twickenham Film Studios, where they would later shoot Help!, Let It Be and a number of promotional videos and solo projects.
On this day The Beatles worked from 8am to 10pm, filming the ‘I Should Have Known Better’ sequence. A set was built to resemble a train guard’s van, which was rocked while The Beatles mimed to the song. At one point, however, director Richard Lester had to stop the shoot because the technicians were rocking the set in time with the song.
