"Twist And Shout" early Television footage

On August 14 1963, The Beatles arrived at Studio Four, Granada TV Center in Manchester England in order to tape a performance of "Twist And Shout" being lip-synced. The video of the performance is quite nice.
It's in black and white and all of the Beatles are wearing black polo neck shirts/sweaters. The film starts with a shot of John's Rickenbacker guitar (the music starts before he actually starts strumming..hee hee). Then the camera pans showing John's face as he starts to sing. Paul and George are shown doing the back up vocals and Ringo is behind them both.
Most of this video can be seen on the DVD "All You Need Is Love"; the television special by Tony Palmer - the episode entitled "Mighty Good" at the start of the DVD when the credits roll. Some of the footage has been spliced in and out of the "Anthology" DVD series by Apple.
