November 18, 1963. The Beatles are coming, The Beatles are coming.
Beatles’ first American TV appearance was on NBC News
The Nov. 18, 1963 edition of the Huntley-Brinkley Report featured this report on Beatlemania in England by correspondent Edwin Newman. It was the Beatles’ first appearance on American television and hasn’t been seen anywhere since it aired half a century ago. The video no longer exists, but this audio-only copy was recently discovered in the archives.
