Known as the Blackpool Night Out. The 1st August 1965 is when The Beatles made one television appearance in Britain to promote the Help! album. Other shows had to run pre-recorded clips instead.
Blackpool Night Out was made by ABC TV, and filmed at the ABC Theatre in Blackpool. Shown by all but one of the ITV companies across the UK, in a live broadcast between 9.10pm and 10.05pm.
The Beatles performed ‘I Feel Fine’, ‘I’m Down’, ‘Act Naturally’. And ‘Ticket To Ride’, before Paul McCartney sang ‘Yesterday’ on his own. Also, the first time the song performed on British television.
The group closed with ‘Help!’, following John Lennon’s tongue-in-cheek announcement to McCartney: “Thank you Ringo, that was wonderful”.
