Filming Promotional Videos for "Paperback Writer" and "Rain"

Taped: May 19, 1966
Aired: June 5, 1966

At EMI Studios (Abbey Road Studio One), beginning at 10 a.m., the Beatles taped promotional clips of "Paperback Writer" and "Rain" in both color and black and white for television stations around the world. Director Michael Lindsay-Hogg had worked with them before at Ready Steady Go! and they were to use him again in the future for Let It Be.

They had lunch at the Genevieve restaurant on Thayer Street, near EMI, and taped more film in the afternoon. That evening Alan Civil recorded his French horn solo on "For No One."
