The Beatles' first appearance on American television was on NBC News -- the November 18, 1963 edition of the Huntley-Brinkley Report, which featured this report on Beatlemania in England by correspondent Edwin Newman. It 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. Of course, the Beatles' first LIVE appearance on American television was the Ed Sullivan Show, on February 9, 1964. This NBC News report predates that immortal moment by nearly three months. It also aired well before other TAPED reports, including those by CBS, Jack Paar and others.
