Snippet of new Beatles footage found

Postby Tactful Cactus » 01 Jun 2019, 10:58

A 1966 clip of the Fab Four performing single “Paperback Writer” on the U.K. music chart television show Top of the Pops has been discovered and will soon be made available for public viewing. Collector David Chandler recorded the 92-second clip using a wind-up camera, recently rediscovering the film after digging through his attic. Chandler then donated the 8mm reels to Kaleidoscope, a group focused on restoring decades-old film and television. After some professional remastering, the performance is now ready for the rest of us to witness. Chandler’s find proved exceptional in more ways than one. Also included were performances by Dusty Springfield, The Hollies, Ike and Tina Turner, Tom Jones, The Shadows and The Troggs. All in all, the extra reels contained nine minutes of material.

My understanding is that 8 mm is typically, but not always, silent.

Is that the case here, I wonder.

Wouldn't be too difficult to put the record on to the digitalised recording - they were lip-synching on the show, after all.

I must be getting old because I don't give a flying fuck. 92 seconds? :roll:

The Anthology DVDs literally have hours of this stuff.

Yea and I know it all inside out. I think it's exciting that there's new footage, especially from '66. It will be grainy and silent though. Is that performance on the BBC sessions? Maybe they'll sync the audio.
