Subject: RE: The Beatles and Folk Group
The Beatles never appeared on Granada TV in 1962.
As Mark Lewisohn (pre-eminent Beatles reseacher) comments:
"As a direct result of Beatles fans' letters, producers from the Manchester based Granada Television had watched the group in action at Cambridge Hall in Southport on 26 July  and again in the Cavern Club on 1 August. Impressed by what they had seen, a crew was dispatched this lunchtime [22 August] to film them in live performance for a programme entilted Know The North
The murky Cavern Club conditions were scarcely conducive to good filming, and the end result was largely umsatisfactory; the footage was shelved, deemed unfit for use, and was only exhumed for broadcast much later on, when the Beatles were famous. The first transmission was on Wednesday 6 November 1963, on Granda's evening magazine programme Scene At 6.30 "
