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.
