An iconic video of The Beatles performing on Top Of The Pops has recently been found

The video of their only live performance on the show was found by a collector in Mexico who passed it onto Kaleidoscope, missing TV footage specialists based in Birmingham.

The Beatles pre-recorded a number of performances for the show, but the video is the only surviving footage of the band miming live to 'Paperback Writer' back in 1966.

Despite performing on Top Of The Pops several times their performance were never archived.

Kaleidoscope's Chris Perry told the BBC "People thought it was gone forever because videotape wasn't kept in 1966. To find it all these years later was stunning."
