'Around the Beatles'

An excellent 1964 Beatles TV special filmed in England and broadcast around the world, with musical guests including Cilla Black, Long John Baldry, and Millie. Here, the Beatles themselves do a half-dozen songs (including a rare cover of the Isley Brothers' "Shout") and at one point they even get in costume to clown their way through the play within the play from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. George Harrison plays Moonshine, Ringo Starr is the Lion, Paul McCartney portrays Pyramus and John Lennon gets in drag as Pyramus's lover Thisbe.
