Default \'Lost\' Beatles show to be aired

'Lost' Beatles show to be aired

Saturday, 6 November, 2004

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertain...ic/3988087.stm

Recently discovered TV footage of The Beatles is to be broadcast for the first time since 1964 on a US award show, organisers have said.
The tape of She Loves You and I Want To Hold Your Hand will be broadcast at the American Music Awards on 14 November.

Producer Dick Clark said the footage was from an unnamed English show "that aired here that for some reason or another went into a trunk somewhere".

The two-and-a-half minute tape will be seen on US network ABC's coverage.

Mr Clark said: "We've got a wonderful old... tape that's been lost for 40 years that nobody's seen since it first aired."

But no more details were available. The American Music Awards ceremony is seen as the biggest rival to the Grammys.

I just got a press release from the American Music Awards with more info. But it looks like this tape has been out there for many years already. Sure, it hasn't been shown on tv in 40 years, but it's been on bootlegs for awhile. I'm pretty sure it's the usual Around The Beatles special. I have it on video (it was actually officially released at one point), and also on CD without the audience. The 'Anthology' release even had a few of the tracks. They're all listed on this CD...

Bless and thank you both for this information!

November 15, 1964 was a Sunday, which means a lot of folks were home in front of their television to catch this treat. And now, thanks to Paulrus and Jerry, we can ride this Beatle train as well!

What a crock that this film has been "lost" for 40 years. Gee, then why do I have it on an officially released videotape? It really annoys me when PR people mislead me like that.

Three? Which one did I miss?

I could go ahead and close this topic, but it was started before the other one in Abbey Road and has more views. BB, what shall we do here?

Did any one watch AMA? I found it "Boring" to use Jimmy Kimmel's choice of words, his attempt at humor was awful, after showing the Beatles clip, he said “Oh that was boring…I’ll take you all” Did I hear any booing from the audience or was it just me at Kimmel's remark? Of course the clip was dated, but this band was great (and still alive with us here) Lets see were Kimmel will be in 40 years.

It was great to see that 'lost' bit anyway. No television show could do justice to these guys... so I won't go on complaining one bit.

I know, I thought it was funny for a split second, because I assumed he was going to say, "just kidding!" Except he really didn't. The booing was pretty loud actually. Tons of people cheered for the Beatles, it was fantastic. I loved the clip!

He actually did say he was kidding but it wasn't heard that well because of all the booing. He should have said it louder. I thought that whole tribute thing was useless. They could have done more. And I thought Ringo was actually going to be there live! They over hyped that thing for nothing. Oh Well.
Atleast I got to see that crazy guy doing those hilarious dance moves in the back of the beatles singing. lol.

I never heard it (I'm sorry folks) Still it showed lack of class on Jimmy Kimmels part, very poor taste, and very true the whole Tribute could have been much much better and I also thought Ringo would be there, still...it was great to see the clip.
You know some of these singers, or groups will fade away, and never reach the heights of the Beatles, so respect is well deserved, and it will go around and around, my hope is one day, a great tribute is given to The Beatles, maybe with Paul, Ringo, Jules and Sean (yeah okay Yoko too)
Peace!

I thought Kimmel said "just kidding," then even softer, said "sort of." I thought it was pretty nasty on his part, but at least the audience booed and hissed at him. Al Roker gave an awesome introduction, though. He introduced the clip as "by one of his favorite bands of all time," and introduced Ringo as "one of my idols, and now someone I can call my friend."
Personally, I didn't find that short clip to be worth watching nearly three hours of crappy music. Did anyone happen to catch Jessica Simpson "sing?" She looked spastic and sounded as awful as I do. Truly, I had to mute my TV for some of those "performances." They were worse than fingernails on a chalkboard.

his exact words were "I'm so.. Not kidding"

as was said, it was very classless. its rare that Booing is appropriate but is was that time, IMO.

as a friend of mine (another Beatles fan) pointed out- here's an a$$40!# who got his fame by being a sexist jerk.

it wasn't Al Roker, it was his ABC counterpart, the weather guy from Good Morning America. he's said before that he's a big Beatles fan! and apparently he even subscibes to one of the fanzines- BeatlesFan i think...? but i'm not sure.
