Fact You Might Not Have Known About #thebeatles

The Beatles made their first appearance on CBS's "The Ed Sullivan Show" on Feb. 9, 1964, but that was by no means their American television debut. On Nov. 18, 1963, the NBC news program "The Huntley-Brinkley Report" was the first to air footage (albeit pre-recorded) of The Beatles in concert. ("The Jack Paar Show" also showcased a pre-recorded Beatles performance on Jan. 3, 1964.) At one point during the performance, which was nearly drowned out by the shrieks of Beatles fans, NBC reporter Edwin Newman remarked, "One reason for The Beatles' popularity may be that it's almost impossible to hear them."
