Live: Odeon Cinema, Glasgow

6.00pm, Thursday 30 April 1964 (50 years ago)

The Beatles gave two concerts at the Odeon Cinema in Glasgow, Scotland, on this evening.

Prior to the concerts they were interviewed at the Roman Camp hotel in Callander, Perthshire, where they had stayed the night before, by a BBC Scotland camera crew. The interviewer was Evelyn Elliot, and the report was shown that evening on the BBC 1 news show Six Ten.

That afternoon they also visited Glasgow’s Theatre Royal studios, to record a contribution for the Scottish Television show Roundup. They chatted to hosts Morag Hood and Paul Young, but didn’t perform. The show was first broadcast on STV from 5pm on 5 May 1964.
