Today in 1967, The Beatles performed “All You Need Is Love” during the first live, global satellite TV broadcast in history, called Our World, produced by the BBC.

Creative artists representing nineteen different nations were invited to perform or appear in separate segments featuring their respective countries. The two-and-half-hour event drew the largest television audience ever up to that date: an estimated 400 million people around the globe watched it. Today, it is most famous for the segment from the United Kingdom starring The Beatles, which closed the broadcast.
