The Beatles - A Day in The Life : Wednesday, July 10, 1963

Studio Two, Aeolian Hall, London

Six consecutive nights in Margate, two "houses" each, for which the Beatles repertoire comprised "Roll over Beethoven", "Thank You Girl", "Chains", "Please Please me", "A taste of honey", "I saw her standing there", "Baby, It's you", "From me to you", and "Twist and Shout".

With the commitment of their BBC Light Programme radio series, "Pop go the Beatles", the group were obliged to return to London early in the morning of Wednesday, July 10th to record two shows, for transmission on Tuesdays (July 23th and July 30th) respectively, both from 5:00 to 5:29 pm. Program six was rehearsed and recorded from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm, Program seven from 1:30 to 3:30 pm. After that, the group made a mad dash back to Margate, in order to appear in the first "house" of the evening at the Winter Gardens.

In Program six, the Beatles performed "Sweet Little Sixteen", "A Taste of Honey", "Nothin' Shakin' (But the leaves on the tree), "Love me Do", "Lonesome Tears in my Eyes", and "So How Come" (No One Loves Me).

In the seventh show they played "Memphis, Tennessee", "Do you want to know a secret", "Till there was you", "Matchbox", "Please, Mister Postman", and "The Hippy Hippy Shake".

The Beatles guests in these two programs were Carter-Lewis and the Southerners and the Searchers, respectively.
