The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Sunday, April 14, 1963

Teddington Studio Centre, Teddington

Taping of the Beatles third appearance on the ABC Television program, "Thank Your Lucky Stars", broadcast across most of the ITV network on Saturday, April 20th from 5:50 to 6:30 pm.

In this edition, the group were called for an 11:00 am rehearsal and took part in the continuous taping during the afternoon, miming to one song, "From Me To You". The Beatles were third on the bill, other guests including the not yet successful Dave Clark Five, The Vernons Girls, Bert Weedon and, topping the line-up, visiting American Del Shannon, with whom the Beatles would work again the next Thursday.

After the TYLS taping, the Beatles drove to the nearby town of Richmond-upon-Thames to see, for the first time, another up and coming new group, the Rolling Stones, in live action at the Crawdaddy Club in the town's Station Hotel pub.
