The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: November 14, 1964 (Saturday)-

Teddington Studio Centre, Teddington

A 1:00 to 5:00 pm visit to ABC Television in Teddington to rehearse and then video-tape, without an audience, a show-closing contribution to the following Saturday's edition of Thank Your Lucky Stars (November 21, 5:50 - 6:35 pm). They mimed to four songs, "I Feel Fine", "She's A Woman", I'm A Loser" and "Rock and Roll Music". To have the Beatles back on the show was deemed such a coup by ABC executives that the re-named this edition Lucky Stars Special in their honor.

As well as performing, the group participated in a humorous opening skit, in which, after delivering a short speech, Ringo pulled a cord to lift the covering from an adjacent statue. The statue turned out to be the real life show host Brian Matthew, who promptly introduced the first act. The Beatles then popped up again just before the programme's only commercial break, giving the thumbs-up when Matthew announced that they would play in part two of the programme, following which they draped the cover back over him!
