Person to Person is a popular television program that originally ran from 1953 to 1961, and returned in 2012. In the original series,Edward R. Murrow hosted it until 1959, interviewing celebrities in their homes from a comfortable chair in his New York studio.

John Lennon and Paul McCartney appear on NBC-TV’s Tonight Show with guest-host Joe Garagiola sitting in for Johnny Carson. Actress Tellulah Bankhead (far right) was also a guest on the show.
The video of this interview no longer exists. Almost all of the 1962 to 1970 episodes were erased by NBC (taped over). This audio of the show was recorded by a Beatles fan who decided to capture the TV interview by placing a small tape recorder next to their TV set.
