The Beatles - A Day in The Life: April 10, 1965 (Saturday)

Studio Two, Riverside Studios, London

With a new single out, another Top Of The Pops television appearance was necessary, and for the last time the group went into BBC studios and shot a mimed performance exclusively for TOTP screening. Video-taping (including rehearsals) took place from 1:30 pm and two songs were shot, the usual A- and B-side formula: "Ticket To Ride" and "Yes It Is". For the first time, the Beatles wore the fawn-colored jackets which they would wear again the next day at the NME concert and then wear for their famous Shea Stadium concert. (In August)

Both song performances were included in Top Of The Pops on Thursday, April 15th, transmitted from 7:30 to 8:00 pm. "Yes It Is" was then repeated the following week (April 22) and "Ticket To Ride" on April 29th and again on May 6th, all (7:30-8:00 pm).
