Episode Recap

Surviving footage:
Presenters: Keith Fordyce & Cathy McGowan
--Opening credits (theme song: "5-4-3-2-1" by Manfred Mann)
--Fordyce begins the show by taking a "special look at fashion"...the Beatles' hair and clothing.
--The Beatles - "You Can't Do That."
--Cathy McGowan interviews George (talks about having no privacy, his impressions of America, favorite film stars, etc.)
--The Beatles - "Can't Buy Me Love."
--Fordyce announces an award by Billboard magazine which Cathy presents to the Beatles.
--The Beatles view (and deface) artwork sent in by fans for a contest (while their record "This Boy" is played). John Lennon presents the art contest winner, Jeremy John Ratter, with his prize: Mingus by Charlie Mingus and Dmitri Shostakovich's Cello Concerto LP's.
--The Beatles - "It Won't Be Long"
--John Lennon appears as the Amateur DJ of the Week. First, Fordyce asks John about his latest book. Then, they mull over which song to play while Alma Cogan holds up a sign reading "My Record 'Tennessee Waltz'." Lennon plays her song but introduces her as "Alma Warren"

Also appearing:
--Dusty Springfield - "Everyday I Have to Cry"
--The Animals - "Baby, Let Me Take You Home"
--Bobby Vee - "Buddy's Song"
--Keith Fordyce interviews Bobby Vee, who talks about Buddy Holly and working with the Crickets.

Additional guests (originally appeared, but it's not known if these segments have survived):
--Millicent Martin - possibly sang her current single "Suspicion." 
--Also, Alma Cogan was a featured guest. So it's possible that her appearance consisted of more than just the "Tennessee Waltz" cameo (mentioned above).
