Check out the review along with pics from the book below:
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.
Space is beautiful. Space is terrifying. IKEA is mostly just terrifying, especially when you get lost. Director Daniel Hubbard hilariously spoofed Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity by setting it inside the expansive world of IKEA. At over 346,000 square feet and absolutely no sense of direction, it sure feels endless. The parody trailer nails the IKEA shopping experience, the frantic cries of Sandra Bullock, and the overall tension of Gravity. IKEA is Earth's equivalent of getting lost in space.
NEW YORK — CBS is planning a two-hour special to mark the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' groundbreaking first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
The Feb. 9 special will be billed as a Grammy Awards salute to the Beatles. It will be recorded the day after the Grammys are held two weeks earlier. Top contemporary artists will cover songs the Beatles performed on Sullivan, a historic night in music that launched Beatlemania in the United States.
The special will be aired 50 years to the day the Beatles appeared on Sullivan, in the same time slot and on the same network.
