Notes: The Beatles final Melbourne concert (they performed 6 shows over three days) was filmed for an exclusive TV special which screened 2 weeks later on July 1.
The concert was filmed and broadcast by GTV Channel 9.
The special was one hour in length and included footage from the opening acts but only 17 minutes of The Beatles set was broadcast due to the insistence of Brian Epstein.
This is the complete raw tape of the concert which includes parts of three of the missing four songs
("I Saw Her Standing There" missing start; "Till There Was You" start only; "Roll Over Beethoven" end only) and "This Boy" is missing completely (evidently not taped at all).
The Beatles portion of the concert has been re-broadcast a few times since including screenings for the 30th and 40th anniversaries plus an airing in July 2020.
