Lost Beatles footage to be shown for first time in more than 50 years

The Fab Four’s appearance on Top of the Pops in the summer of 1966 was thought to have been lost to history before the collector David Chandler handed over a series of 8mm film reels.

Chandler gave the haul to Kaleidoscope, a group that specialises in recovering video and TV shows. Experts remastered the footage and enhanced the sound of the clip, featuring 92 seconds of the Beatles performing Paperback Writer.
