May 12: Bob Dylan: With God On Our Side, Broadcast by BBC 1 in 1964

Oh my name it is nothin’
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I’s taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And that the land that I live in
Has God on its side

Originally due to appear on the English “Tonight” program on the eighth of May, Dylan appears on the program on the 12th, introduced by Cliff Michelmore. He performs a very hesitant version of “With God on Our Side.” The TV footage is obviously a video insert, so it was presumably filmed earlier in the day.
