Morecambe & Wise Show 1963


This Beatles’ appearance on The Morecambe And Wise Show was filmed at ATV’s Elstree Studio Centre in Borehamwood on December 2, 1963, although it wasn’t broadcast to the nation until April 1964.  In the morning they rehearsed their act prior to filming in the afternoon. The Beatles performed three songs to a studio audience: This Boy, All My Loving and I Want To Hold Your Hand.  At the end of the set they were then joined by Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise for some banter and a light-hearted version of golden oldie Moonlight Bay.

The episode of The Morecambe And Wise Show was broadcast on the ITV network on Saturday April 18 1964 at 8:25 PM. It was repeated on July 24, 1965 on The Best Of Morecambe And Wise.

The audio recording of Moonlight Bay was released on Anthology 1 in 1995.
