Watch Beatles Week online: Episode 2 The Beatles: The First U.S. Visit

The inside story of two remarkable weeks in 1964, when Beatlemania first ignited in America. From airport to hotel to TV studio, the pioneering Maysles brothers were at The Beatles' shoulders on their first US visit. Granted all areas access, the siblings filmed The Beatles off guard and off duty, in hotel rooms and nightclubs, at photo shoots, press conferences, in limos and on trains. The footage includes a performance on The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964, when The Beatles played to 73 million television viewers, and their debut concert at the Washington Coliseum.
