The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Wednesday, August 14, 1963

Studio Four, Granada TV Centre, Manchester

Six nights in concert on the north Wales coast, two "Houses" each. After the 2nd show on Tuesday, the Beatles returned to Liverpool and the next morning drove out across to the Granada TV Centre in Manchester, where - dressed not in suits but, unusually, in black polo-neck sweaters and jeans, they taped 2 separate song performances for broadcast in Granada's north-area news-magazine program "Scene At" 6:30. The first, "Twist and Shout", was transmitted this day (6:30-7:00 pm). The 2nd, "She Loves You", was retained for broadcast on Monday, August 19th at the same times.

Following the taping, the Beatles went back to Wales for the first Llandudno "House" of the evening.
