I think that frost probably broadcasted that show in B & W-It appears to have been FILMED in color, though. Not sure. I only know that I saw it in color back in 1968 on "The Smothers Brothers"
The Anthology DVD proves it....

I was a bit surprised that this particular version of REVOLUTION wasn't on ANTHOLOGY 3. It's kind of cool - the fast single version, with the "shoo-be-doo" stuff from the slow version. And John's "count me". This should have been included.

What's cool about this film clip is that alongside the "Rooftop concert" footage, this is one of the few times in the late period (my favorite) Beatles that you got to see them in a performance situation.

Another cool thing is that under the BBC rules of the time they couldn't lipsync their vocals, so they had to have live vocals over a pre-recorded backing track (which was probably the master tape from the single released version from the sound of it). But the cool thing is that they didn't stop there. They added live electric guitars from George and John presumably to intensify the performance and it came off good.
