1962 - Back to Studio Four, Granada TV Centre in Manchester, The Beatles tape their second appearance on the program "People and Places". Rehearsals and recording take about two hours (11:00 am to 1:00 pm). The Beatles perform two songs, "Love Me Do" and "A Taste of Honey". In an unusual stage setting (for The Beatles, at least), "Love Me Do" is taped with Paul, George, and Ringo standing, but John, without an instrument, is sitting and singing in the style of a solo singer backed by a supporting group. For "A Taste of Honey", though, they resume their usual group arrangement, although they remove their suit coats and perform in waistcoats.
