Television: People And Places

11.00am, Monday 29 October 1962 (51 years ago)

Twelve days after their debut television appearance on the People And Places show, The Beatles returned to Granada TV Centre in Manchester to film a second performance.

The appearance was rehearsed and recorded in Studio Four from 11am to 1pm. The Beatles performed Love Me Do and A Taste Of Honey.

The stage setting was unusual for The Beatles. During Love Me Do, John Lennon sang, seated, as if he were a solo performer fronting a band. The others in the group all stood. During the second song all members played their instruments, although wearing waistcoats rather than their suit jackets.

This edition of People And Places, unlike their first, was not broadcast live. It was shown in the north and north-west of England fro m6.30-7pm on 2 November, by which time The Beatles were in Hamburg.
