The Beatles drove from Liverpool to Granada TV Centre in Manchester to record two performances for the Scene At 6.30 show, a current affairs magazine show broadcast to England’s northern ITV region.
The recording took place in Studio Four. The Beatles wore black polo-necks and jeans – a departure from their normally suited attire.
Two songs were performed. The first, ‘Twist And Shout’, was broadcast that evening, while the second, ‘She Loves You’, was shown the following Monday.
After the filming was complete The Beatles drove back to Llandudno, where they were in the middle of a six-night residency at the Odeon Cinema.
