Television: Thank Your Lucky Stars

1.00pm, Saturday 14 November 1964 (49 years ago)

The Beatles rehearsed and recorded their seventh contribution to the television show Thank Your Lucky Stars at Teddington Studios on this day. It was screened on ITV the following Saturday, 21 November 1964, from 5.50pm.

The group mimed to four songs: I Feel Fine, She’s A Woman, I’m A Loser and Rock And Roll Music. There was no studio audience present.

Despite their numerous previous appearances on the show, by November 1964 The Beatles were so famous that it was a coup for the producers to have them even mime for an edition. In recognition of this, the show was renamed Lucky Stars Special.

Afterwards, John Lennon and Ringo Starr went to the Flamingo Club in London’s Soho to see Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames perform. Paul McCartney and George Harrison went to their respective homes.
