One day in 1968, Don McCullin, then the world's most famous war photographer, spent a day photographing the Beatles. McCullin had just returned from Vietnam.
The Beatles were at the height of their fame following the release of Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. McCullin shot 20 rolls of black-and-white film in various locations across London, from the banks of the Thames to Paul McCartney's garden. Most of these pictures have not been published before and the best of them can now be seen in this new book.
