The Big Picture: Paul McCartney's piano

Paul McCartney's piano

A piano played by John Lennon and Paul McCartney while filming Help! in 1965 is to be sold at auction. They used the 1907 Bechstein Concert Grand to compose the title song, according to the film's director Richard Lester, who is selling it. Lester also says McCartney used it while writing Yesterday. The piano has been valued at £50,000 by Omega Auctions and will be sold in Liverpool on 20 March.
