History: BBC Pop Profile interviews with George Harrison and John Lennon

On Nov. 30, 1965, BBC announcer Brian Matthew, host of "Saturday Club" did relatively serious interviews with both George Harrison and John Lennon.

These shows weren't broadcast in Britain, but pressed onto transcription disks for use in overseas markets. Matthew did similar interviews with Paul and Ringo in May 1966. And all four of the interviews are included on the Beatles' On Air: Live at the BBC Vol. 2 compilation.
