The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : March 24, 1964 (Tuesday)

Scala Theatre, London

More filming at the Scala. During a break on the 24th, John discussed his new book in an interview given to the British-based Australian broadcaster/actor Dibbs Mather, which was then distributed exclusively to overseas radio stations by the BBC's Transcription Service in its series Dateline London. Neither the series nor the interview was heard in Britain.

An extended Easter weekend break followed the Thursday shoot, with John and Cynthia, accompanied by George and girlfriend Pattie Boyd, spending the weekend at the remote Dromolan castle in County Clare, Ireland, Paul staying in London and Ringo and friends spending Easter at the country house Woburn Abbey, in Bedfordshire. Filming resumed the  following Tuesday.
