In 1965, The Byrds' Gene Clark, Roger McGuinn, and David Crosby wrote the song Eight Miles High about their plane trip to England. Two years later, the group returned to London and McGuinn took along his home movie camera. Editing inside the camera, McGuinn created a one-take short film that Paul McCartney called "brilliant." In this Growing Bolder exclusive, McGuinn tells the story of this historic film -- and then shows it!
