Jörg Pipper (author of The Beatles Films and Television Chronicles): “The ITN news team managed to meet the Beatles outside the London store on Blandford Street (store sign: “Bristol Wine Merchants”). Only Paul stopped to answer a couple of questions, while everyone else walked past to get into the car waiting for them: Reporter: Paul, what kind of reception do you expect in the United States? Paul: I’m expecting a great reception. Reporter: Do you think? Do you think you’re doing the right thing by going there at a time like this? Paul: Oh, yes, there’s a wonderful, wonderful climate… Reporter: Are you looking forward to it? Paul: Yes, for now.”
