The bulk of Beatle TV appearances consisted of JPG&R singing or lip-synching on shows like READY, STEADY, GO, THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW and THANK YOUR LUCKY STARS; guesting on variety shows like THE MORECAMBE AND WISE SHOW; or being interviewed by the likes of David Frost and Joe Garagiola. Highlights included their appearance at the Royal Command Performance in 1963, the Ed Sullivan shows and their world broadcast performance of 'All You Need Is Love' in June 1967. In 1967 their glorified home-movie MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR aired on BBC, garnering almost universal criticism.
Tedman and Bench recount all those telly moments in a fast-paced, sympathetic yet critical fashion. The hundreds of color and b&w photographs are the book's main selling point and they do not disappoint. They're wonderfully entertaining and evocative.
Beatles fans will want to pick up a copy of THE BEATLES ON TELEVISION. At $19.95, it's an inexpensive and charming photo-guide that will bring back fond memories of Beatle days gone by.
This book has a delightful collection of the Beatles' TV appearances. There are 3 sections: 1962-1966; All You Need is Love from 1967 and also from 1967 "Magical Mystery Tour." The photographs are a such a treat and readers get to take a Magical Mystery Tour with the Beatles from their earliest days as a group to their later, experimental period. This is a must have for all serious collectors.
