It was common practice back then to wipe tapes due to how much storage space they took up, and it wasn't just the BBC. A lot of material has since been rediscovered due to overseas broadcasts, people like Bob Monkhouse recording off the radio/TV and keeping them for their own collections, cases of being misfiled (the Pete Best recording of 'Love Me Do ' was discovered in George Martin's closet in the early 90's!!) and other reasons. A clip of the Beatles mimed performance of 'Ticket To Ride ' on 'Top Of The Pops' only exists due to a short excerpt being used in 'Doctor Who'.
Different times back then, nostalgia and repeats were not as big a thing. See it once or twice and that was you.

Sadly, the explanation why neither "performance" is never seen is because it's another example of the BBC wiping the tape.
It was common practice back then to wipe tapes due to how much storage space they took up, and it wasn't just the BBC.
The real head scratcher about this particular episode was the fact that the tape was not wiped until sometime around March 1970. Given the fact they were The Beatles, you'd think there would have been second thoughts.
To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

I'm with you @Zig. With them being the greatest rock n roll band ever and all that, you'd think someone would have thought twice about wiping it.
Would have been great to see it,even if they were miming

Maybe March 1970 they figured the Beatles were on the out and would fade in popularity, into a blip in history. Who knows?
