The Beatles appear on The 625 Show

On April 13 1963 The Beatles went to the BBC to record their first national TV debut. The studios were located in Shepherd's Bush (Lime Grove) and the Fab Four rehearsed three times before taping their performance.

The name of the show was "The 625 show" (no relation to Jack Goods' 6.5 Special) and they played From Me To You, Thank You Girl and Please Please Me.

Afterwards they went to a party organised by Bruce Welch (born Bruce Cripps), the guitarist of The Shadows. There The Beatles met Cliff Richard for the first time.
