Comments : Itís The Beatles CD: Unprocessed Version
The best version discovered so far of this concert broadcast on the BBC.
It's a line recording and is complete from start to finish, even including the station announcement for the Beatles Boxing Day show on the Light Programme.
Originally uploaded to a digital forum, it was downloaded and enthusiasts have been able to clean it up.
This is a remastered version from "Lord Reith" with a noise clean up. Speed correction (using the surviving video as reference), mains hum removed, equalised and bursts of static interference replaced with inserts from a previous version of the same concert.

Itís The Beatles: Restored Edition DVD
Only about 11 minutes of the visuals remain.
In it's infinite wisdom the BBC did not save tape and in the case of this particular film, the tape was actually used by the Beeb to train video editors in the technique of cutting and splicing, resulting in only four songs having survived.
Some of it audience shots, and then most of the last four songs.
This version has been restored by Lord Reith using the best quality versions that do not include timecode.
I Want To Hold Your Hand and the ending part are different as they include newsreel footage.
It also includes a pre-editing master with traditional timecode.

Itís The Beatles: Raw Footage
The original of the shredded video that has circulated over many years, which,
makes one realize the work gone into the restored version.
