The Beatles - A Day in The Life: December 14, 1969

Today a television tribute to George Martin, With A Little Help From My Friends, was filmed.

Ringo Starr was among the guests taking part in the televisual spectacular, which also featured Dudley Moore, The Hollies, Blue Mink, Lulu, Spike Milligan and dancers Pan’s People, plus Martin himself conducting the 40-piece George Martin Orchestra.

With A Little Help From My Friends was filmed in Studio Four at The Television Centre in Leeds. Starr’s contribution was to mime to Octopus’s Garden. Because of a Musicians’ Union ban on lip-syncing on British television, however, parts of the song had been re-recorded on December 8th to give the impression of a live performance.
