Pic attached - global satellite television was
definitely in its formative stages!
The car in the background was 980 - the M&MTB wanted
their "best car" to be used but the producers insisted
on a regular car. The Board made sure that 980 was
visible - somewhat futile given picture quality!
The TV show ended up with the Beatles doing their
premier perfomrmance of "All You Need is Love".
Good trivia question - "Which Melbourne tramcar
co-starred with the Beatles :-)
