The Beatles visited Rishikesh in India in February 1968 to attend an advanced Transcendental Meditation training session at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
On New Year’s Eve 1961 the Beatles went to London and the following day they were auditioned by Decca producer Tony Meehan.

In April 1966 John Lennon was on the set of the film ‘How I Won The War’ in Almeria, Spain, in which he played Private Gripweed directed by Richard Lester, who also made A Hard Day’s Night and Help! with the Beatles.
