Fifty years ago today, on Monday November 18, 1963, Huntley-Brinkley featured a report by Edwin Newman on the Beatles phenomenon. It was the Beatles’ first appearance on American television. Nearly four minutes long, the piece was seen by millions of people across the country. Not the tens of millions that would see the Beatles live on Ed Sullivan three months later, but still the biggest single audience for the Beatles anywhere outside England up to that moment. It’s hard to believe, but a copy of that broadcast does not exist in the NBC archives. An audio recording somehow did survive, and was recently discovered in the Library of Congress. It is presented here for the first time anywhere in half a century.
