Today in Beatles history - Ed Sullivan

Today marks the 46th anniversary of the Beatles' historic and game-changing appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, which was watched by over 73 million Americans. It is said that even crime came to a halt while the Beatles worked their magic in CBS-TV Studio 50. Go here for "The Story Behind The Beatles on Ed Sullivan" by Bruce Spizer. Also, have a look at part 1 of The Beatles - The First U.S. Visit, a documentary by Albert and David Maysles (you can watch the entirety of the doc on YouTube).
