1964 FactsNo video exists of the full show, the recording was destroyed in a fire at the Danish broadcaster. An empty case was found at the BBC labelled Eurovision 1964, though the tape inside was missing, so it's thought that the BBC were the only other broadcaster to have a full copy of the contest, but the tape was taken and reused. There are full audio copies of the show.
A protester from Swtizerland ran onto the stage after their performance carrying a sign, the cameras switched to a shot of the scoreboard while he was removed by security.
