Notes: The American documentary makers - The Maysles Brothers, were given exclusive access to almost every minute of The Beatles first American visit.
Between filming of the first two appearances on "The Ed Sullivan Show" they retreated back to the hotel rooms where DJ, Murray The K visited them for interviews and some dinner.
The Maysles brothers had their cameras rolling for the entire time.
Quite a bit of film footage shot by The Maysles brothers ended up in the two 1964 documentaries and further outtakes in the DVD bonus feature "The Making of..".
Over 10 minutes was exclusively featured in the 1964 UK doco "Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! The Beatles in New York".
