Doctor Who and the Beatles

Here's a real find from YouTube! A clip from the 1965 Dr. Who episode 'The Chase' where the Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Vicki watch the Beatles play 'Ticket to Ride' on the Time/Space Visualiser.

This is the real thing, not a spliced together bit that a You-Tuber made up. Dr. Who was a kids' show and kids' shows often had bits with pop culture heroes in them.

The episode is from the time of the first Doctor, played by William Hartnell. Not many of his episodes survived a BBC trash-fest a couple of decades ago.
