The Beatles' 'Magical Mystery Tour' - unseen photos

Critics and audiences initially received the film very poorly. George Martin, the band's producer, said: "When it came out originally on British television, it was a colour film shown in black and white, because they didn’t have colour on BBC1 in those days. It looked awful and was a disaster". The film was shown in colour on BBC2 a few days later.
