The Dave Clark Five And Beyond - Glad All Over, A Celebration Of The 50th Anniversary Of The British Invasion Of America, Airs On THIRTEEN's Great Performances Tuesday, April 8, 2014 At 8 P.m. And Friday, April 11 At 10 P.m. On PBS

NEW YORK, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Great Performances presents a look at the British invasion 50 years after both the Dave Clark Five and the Beatles hit our shores.

Great Performances logo

The Dave Clark Five and Beyond – Glad All Over features newly filmed interviews with Tom Hanks , Sir Paul McCartney , Sir Elton John , Bruce Springsteen , Steven Van Zandt of The E Street Band, Stevie Wonder , Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne , Gene Simmons of Kiss, Whoopi Goldberg, Dionne Warwick , '60s fashion icon Twiggy and Sir Ian McKellen , all sharing their memories of how the music of the 60s and the cultural revolution of 1964 changed their lives forever.

The two-hour special airs on PBS on both Tuesday, April 8, 2014, 8-10 p.m. ET and on Friday, April 11 at 10 p.m. - midnight (check local listings).

Included in the film are the DC5's iconic performances on "The Ed Sullivan Show," along with rare live concert footage and their countless appearances on television with American musical icons. Much of this material — much of it on 35mm film — has not been seen in decades, either on television or home video.

The film also features never-before-seen footage from Clark's personal archives together with performances by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Dusty Springfield , Stevie Wonder , the Supremes, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Marvin Gaye , Otis Redding , Freddie Mercury of Queen and Sir Laurence Olivier .  The DC5 were the first English group to tour America (in May 1964), thus spearheading the British Invasion.

They achieved a record-breaking 15 consecutive Top 20 U.S. hit singles within a two-year period — more than any other group in the world except the Beatles. They appeared a record-breaking 18 times on "The Ed Sullivan Show," with its weekly audience of 70 million viewers — more than any other rock, pop or R&B artist. They took the world by storm and helped change the rock scene, blasting hit after hit over the world's radio airwaves.
