      • This premiere episode was taped in Hollywood. It was not, as several sources report, a repackaged "Ready Steady Go!" episode broadcast from London. This rumor probably originated on TV Party's Shindig Page in a quote from Rod Barken. (Mr. Barken worked in the publicity office of Selmur Productions at the outset of production.) In November 2003, Mr. Barkin sent an email clarifying that the premiere show was taped in Hollywood. And the London show he was referring to was the "Around the Beatles" special...which was produced by Jack Good. (In the 1980s The Beatles songs from "Around the Beatles" were released on home video as "The Beatles Live - Ready Steady Go! Special Edition," a misleading title as the special was never an RSG! episode.)

        Here's the playlist for the original "Around the Beatles" special:

        --Audience enters studio, music: "We Love You Beatles."
        --Opening titles.
        --Beatles come out in costume, do a parody of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."
        --Gina Trikonis and Maria Ghava (dancers, billed as "The Jets") and The Vernons Girls - dance to instrumental versions of "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and 2nd song ("Money" ??)
        --Millie Small - "My Boy Lollipop."
        --Andre Tayir, Gina Trikonis and Maria Ghava (dancers) dance to "Night Train."
        --Long John Baldry and female singer (one of the Vernons Girls) - perform a medley that includes "Lover Please" and "40 Days."
        --female singer (one of The Vernons Girls) -"Lover Please."
        --Long John Baldry - song title?
        --female singer (one of The Vernons Girls) - "40 Days."
        --Sounds Incorporated - instrumental song.
        --P.J. Proby - "Walking the Dog."
        --Millie Small - ?
        --Sounds Incorporated - instrumental song.
        --The Vernons Girls - "Only You Can Do It."
        --Long John Baldry - "I Got My Mojo Working."
        --Cilla Black - "Saved."
        --P.J. Proby - "Cumberland Gap" and "I Believe."
        --Murray the K (New York disc jockey) introduces Cilla Black.
        --Cilla Black - "You're My World" and "Heatwave."
        --The Beatles - "Twist and Shout," "Roll Over Beethoven," "I Wanna Be Your Man," "Long Tall Sally" & "Can't Buy Me Love."
        --The Beatles - medley: "Love Me Do," "Please Please Me," "From Me to You," "She Loves You" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand."
        --The Beatles - "Shout" (with closing credits).

        The above "Around the Beatles" playlist was originally listed as a special on this Shindig episode guide, but has since been removed as it was not part of the Shindig series.
        "Around the Beatles" was videotaped April 28, 1964 at Wembley Studios. The performers lip-synched to recordings. The Beatles audio was recorded April 19, 1964, at IBC Studios, London, England.
        U.K. airdate: May 6, 1964 (Rediffusion)
        U.S. airdate November 15, 1964 (ABC)
