Recorded at Rediffusion's Stuio 5 in Wembley, it was produced by Jack Good. The good natured barracking came from band friend John Baldry.

Jury - The Rolling Stones

Guest -

NB The band had to be brought into the studio by armoured truck to be able to get through the crowd outside. Producer Barry Langford later said it took two hours for the band to get out of their transport and ready to record the show. The band had misbehaved during rehearsals, until Brian Jones, sensing David Jacob’s annoyance, cracked the whip and the band behaved during the actual recording. Barry Langford talking to Disc magazine predicted "we expect a minimum viewing audience of twenty million as compared with the regular eleven or twelve million. We have already had over 8000 applications for the 500 tickets available". Normally the audience in attendance would be 150 only and broadcast from Television Centre, studio 2, so a larger studio had to be used. Because there was an odd number of jurors this week the teenage panel was dropped. Also dropped was the usual hit or miss board, while a new but temporary set design was employed. Among the records they judged was a new Elvis disc and The Nashville Teens 'Tobacco Road'.

NB The previous day RSG! wins the top television show award at the Variety Club luncheon in London. In accepting the award Elkan Allan, head of entertainment programmes at Rediffusion remarked "There are so many beat shows on the air. So often when you turn the television on now you see teenagers dancing. When we started Ready Steady Go a year ago ours was the only programme of the kind, now there seems to be one every night. It is now losing its novelty and is radily in danger of becoming a bore. The BBC has two copies on. I give the BBC a challenge. I will cut out one of my shows if they will cut out one of theirs!"

BBC1 Top Of The Pops 7.30 - 8:00 pm

NB The show features The Searchers in Sydney, Australia, the start of occasional location filming for the show. Talking to the Daily Mirror at the time, show producer Johnnie Stewart said "We want to get more artists out of the studio and into the open air. With so many of the chart toppers roaming around the world, it isn't always easy to keep up with them. It's also a very expensive job to film artists abroad then have them flown home. But we hope to capture a lot of American stars this way”.
