History: Beatles film promos for Day Tripper, We Can Work it Out, Help, Ticket to Ride and I Feel Fine

On Nov. 23, 1965, the Beatles met at Twickenham Film Studios near London to film a batch of song promo films with director Joe McGrath.

The films, now all collected in the Beatles 1+ video compilation, were intended for use on various variety and music TV programs, allowing the group maximum exposure without needing to appear on each show in person.

In all, the group filmed two versions of "Day Tripper," three of "We Can Work it Out," one of "Ticket to Ride" and two of "I Feel Fine" on this day.

Here is "We Can Work it Out" from this session.
