Rehearsal: Another Beatles Christmas Show

This was the second day of rehearsals for Another Beatles Christmas Show, The Beatles’ 1964 festive variety performance, at London’s Hammersmith Odeon. The show opened on 24 December 1964.

In a break during this day’s rehearsals, Jimmy Savile and a BBC camera crew filmed a brief interview, lasting little more than a minute, for the Christmas Eve edition of Top Of The Pops. Savile was the presenter of the television programme, and also appeared in the stage show.
