Does anyone recall seeing The Beatles singing Paperback Writer and Rain on Top of the Pops in 1966. Apparently a rare live appearance.
i think all you can find if you go on youtube are still photographs of their performances. Unfortunately in the old days they tended to re-use old tapes , they were not to know then how historically important these performances were to become. The same went for some classic comedies i the sixties too. When the BBC showed a history of Top Of The Pops programme the realised the had no copies of any Beatle footage, everyone else of note were shown, we were left with i think a performance of Instant Karma.
There's this 8mm tape (very poor quality) of Can't Buy Me Love on TOTP
And 27 seconds of Paperback Writer. All that remains I'm afraid.
I loved it , Can't Buy me love is pleasant but has never been a favourite with me, this however seems to me live and is much more exciting. I'm amazed even with this grainy footage that the BBC did not snap it up and show it, maybe the owner wanted a lot of money for them to show it.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
