Get your camera ready!
When I was young, in the 1980's and I knew that one of the Beatles was going to be on T.V., I would get my VCR ready and make sure I had a tape all keyed up for the appearance. But in the 1960's and 1970's fans didn't have the modern technology that we have today. Not only was there not youtube to see the Beatles but there weren't VCRs in everyone homes. If a Beatle was going to be on T.V. and you wanted to document it, then you would have to get your camera ready and aim it toward the television set to capture a photo.
I recently obtained some George photos from a fan's scrapbook. Included in that mix are these photos of George taken off a T.V. set from when he appeared on the Dick Cavett Show in 1971. Who would have thought back then that this interview and performance would be available not only on home DVD but you can easily find it on the computer and watch it anytime you wish.
