Event Description

During a day of filming at Twickenham, The Beatles used some of their time off from filming to record a number of items for the BBC radio program The Public Ear, to be broadcast from 3:00 to 4:00 PM on March 22, 1964. It was also broadcast on the British Forces Broadcasting Service at the same time in West Germany. The Beatles interviewed themselves, instead of having a BBC announcer do so. The program opened with a letter being read from a fan, who suggested that listeners be told in advance were The Beatles to appear on the program, so fans could contact each other and leteach other know to tune in. After reading this letter, Ringo announced: "We're on today, later on, so don't forget, get on the phone and get yourfriends listening!" When The Beatles actually did appear on the program, later on, George interviewed the other Beatles, faking a plum accent and discussing John's book, In His Own Write, first with Ringo, and then with John. John then read an excerpt from his book, the poem 'Alec Speaking.'George then talked about the film A Hard Day's Night with Paul, then being joined by Ringo, who read the cast and production credits. He credited themselves as producers, along with the real incumbent, John Fawcett Wilson.
