The Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show on 09 February 1964, only two days after their arrival to America

The performance is considered to be a pivotal part of the 'British Invasion' of the sixties, and has long since been remembered by the millions of Americans who watched its airing

John Lennon was once quoted as saying, 'Everyone remembers watching it, it's like asking where you were when Kennedy was shot'

Police reports have shown a drastic drop in crime during that short, perhaps one-hour period, to which George Harrison responded, 'I guess even the criminals took a break to watch it'
