Taken on set of Blackpool Night Out, 19 July 1964
OH to see this in colour ..
Oh to see it at all – it’s been wiped (although the soundtrack exists in good quality)
(Re: Wiping Historical Tapes)…
I don’t know what kind of logic was used to justify such heresy. If you are watching such events as they happened, I would think that the magnitude of importance would be electric…if you are merely an employee being told to “tape over it” after the event, then the obvious should have been enough. The Beatles’ greatness should have been embraced by the archive budget. Tape isn’t that expensive. If you aren’t an EMI affiliate, then a Beatles appearance on your show should have been the last thing you would consider disposable. I mean, did everyone think “they’ll be back next week”?
I guess we can hope that some underpaid employee actually had intuition and somehow succeeded in hijacking the doomed reel…
Indeed, Kwai. In the case of this particular appearance, it’s baffling because each of the Fabs’ three other appearances on Big Night Out/Blackpool Night Out show survive.
