The Beatles’ final Thank Your Lucky Stars appearance

The Beatles had first appeared on the ABC TV show Thank Your Lucky Stars on 13 January 1963. On this day, however, they made their final performance.

They mimed to recordings of three songs before a studio audience: ‘Eight Days A Week’, ‘Yes It Is’ and ‘Ticket To Ride’.

They were also interviewed by presenter Brian Matthew, and the show was broadcast between 5.50pm and 6.35pm on 3 April 1965. Filming took place at Alpha Television Studios in Aston, Birmingham.

Thank Your Lucky Stars was past its popularity peak by March 1965, and by the time it ended on 25 June 1966 it was no longer shown in all ITV regions.
