The Beatles chat to David Coleman on Grandstand (sports show) 1964



Thanks for this interview.

It was done before Cassius Clay beat Sonny Liston and Paul says he thinks Liston will win but daren't say it in the Clay camp!

So John comes up with "Liston, do you want to know a secret..."!

It's very rare to have anything but sport on this show.  It shows that The Beatles' return from the US was big news and it happened on a Saturday because 'Grandstand' was only on on Saturday afternoon.

It's interesting to note that the group were back in England before the third Sullivan show was transmitted on Sunday 23rd.
