We love this, yeah, yeah, yeah! This framed photo card was signed in person by all four Beatles on May 11, 1963, when the group was backstage at the Imperial Ballroom in Nelson, Lancashire, England, north east of Liverpool. According to one of the LOAs, the signatures "were obtained by the police officers on duty for their dressing room security". The publicity/promotional photo card itself measures 3.5x5.75", while the entire framed piece measures 11.5x14". John, Paul, George, and Ringo have signed their names boldly in dark blue ballpoint pen; these are some of the nicest autographs of The Beatles that we have ever seen. The photo card's condition is EX, while the signatures average an 8/10. With a piece like this, we know you should be glad!http://www.lelands.com/Auction/AuctionDetail/65156/November-2010-Catalog/Rock-n-Roll/The-Rick-Rosen-Beatles-Collection/Lot865~The-Beatles-Signed-Parlophone-Promotional-Framed-Photo-Card1964:

This was the second day of filming at Cliveden House as well as the last day that the Beatles were filmed for Help!
At one point during their two days at Cliveden, the Beatles were challenged to a relay running-race around part of the splendid gardens. The contest was filmed with an 8mm home-movie camera by a member of the Help! film crew and the footage still exists. They competed against three other teams from the unit-the electricians, the carpenters and the camera operators-and each team had six runners, the Beatles being augmented by Neil Aspinall and their chauffeur Alf Bickell. (To the surprise of many, because they were considered unfit, the Beatles team won the race.) The Complete Beatles Chronicle

US single release: “The Long and Winding Road”/”For You Blue”. 1972:
John & Yoko's final appearance on Dick Cavett's show which was, by this time, facing the axe, but this particular transmission received a good audience/press response - perhaps largely due to the controversy surrounding the live performance of Woman Is The ****** Of The World which Cavett had insisted be shown despite the networks attempts to have it cut, as a compromise he inserted a warning/explanation before the recording was shown. Yoko's We're All Water was also performed backed by Elephant's memory. The interview touched upon the problems the Lennon's were having with their custody battle for Kyoko and Yoko's campaign to raise money for a children's hospital in Vietnam.
