Following rehearsals on the previous day, The Beatles recorded an appearance for a British edition of US music TV show Shindig! at the Granville Studio in London.
The Beatles were at the top of the bill on the show; the other acts were Sandie Shaw, PJ Proby, The Karl Denver Trio, Tommy Quickly, Sounds Incorporated, and Lyn Cornell. In addition to their performance, The Beatles also appeared in the show’s finale with the Karl Denver Trio.
This British-themed edition of Shindig! was first broadcast in the US by ABC on 7 October 1964, but was never shown in Britain.
