The Screen Guide

In June 1964 the Beatles made their only tour 'Down Under' and turned the southern hemisphere on its head. The social turmoil caused by scenes of mass hysteria and the loss of control of public space was new and very unsettling for conservative authority figures. This was a time when the ‘baby boomer’ generation was just starting to find its voice and unwittingly flex its muscles. This is both the known and unknown story of what really happened on tour!
