Today was the day exactly 50 years ago that Beatles landed at JFK airport and jolted America into full-on Beatlemania with legendary performances on "The Ed Sullivan Show," and the spectacle of wall-to-wall screaming fans overlooking the tarmac where John, Paul, George and Ringo alit from the plane in New York on Feb. 7, 1964 is something you have to see and hear for yourself. Fortunately, 1964 was well into the golden age of TV and news cameras were ready for this special occasion, so you can watch the Fab Four's arrival on American soil again right here.
