1964: The Beatles go to America
In February 1964, The Beatles visit the USA for the first time. A huge crowd of screaming girls is waiting for them at the airport. Their first TV appearance breaks all previous viewing records. Very soon they had the top five singles at the top of the USA Billboard chart.
Back in the UK they make two feature films A Hard Day’s Night (1964) and Help (1965). Both are critical and commercial triumphs.
