Default Return Of The Heroes

Before the third Ed Sullivan show in February '64, The Beatles were already back in England.

Their return was a national event followed closely by the British media.

They were thus interviewed on a TV show that had absolutely nothing to do with music and never showed musicians.

What was the name of the programme, who was the interviewer and what subject came up that had a link with the programme?

When they returned to England the Beatles were on the show Grandstand, a sports show and interviewed by David Coleman. The subject that came up that links it to the program was boxing. The Beatles met Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali).

Yes indeed.

The big fight coming up was Clay vs. Liston.

Paul said he thought Liston would win but daren't say it to Clay. So John came up with "Liston, do you want to know a secret..." !
