On this day, The Beatles flew from London to Chicago, to start their final tour. At Heathrow airport, due to their flight being delayed, they passed the time by visiting some airport facilities. The press filmed them and Paul McCartney and John Lennon said a few words to the BBC.

Q: Hello John. Are you looking forward to the tour?

John Lennon: Yes.

Q: Now, this religious controversy, I know you don’t want to say too much about it, but does it worry you that it’s going to boil up when you get to the States?

John Lennon: Well, it worries me, yes. I hope everything will be all right in the end, as they say.

Q: Do you think this is going to be a controversial tour like the Philippines?

Paul McCartney: Oh, no, no, no. It’s going to be fine.

Q: What makes you say that, Paul?

Paul McCartney: Oh, it’s gonna be fine, you watch. Yeah, great.

There are obviously some overlap in terms of content between the two sites, but also some major differences in terms of approach.
