After the intro, the Beatles perform the song Help!
Paul is a little taller than George, John is maybe the tallest
I've learned that we all see these things differently, which is perfectly fine, but from my perspective, Paul looks the tallest here.
This is a post from FabFourDozen (the forum we had before this one) where we had a thread on the Help!
October 28, 2012:
There is an emotional authority in the track Help! not heard in Lennon’s earlier songs, partly because Help! is not a love song in the conventional sense. Instead, the neediness and nostalgia it expresses seem to play off the ideal Autonomy that the Beatles had come to represent in the minds of their fans. The drama of John’s performance depends upon the fact that it is a Beatle who is singing it, a Beatle who is asking his listeners to help him. In this sense, Help! initiated a new and adventurous stage in Lennon’s career as a songwriter, in which he would begin to draw, with conscious intent, on the power of his own celebrity. Harrison’s descending guitar notes parody the sinister clichés that often underscore suspense scenes in action movies.
In Help! we see John isolated and alienated like never before. John’s title line consists of one wailing note, trailing off into a wash of arpeggio guitar notes descending into his mental anguish. Fat Elvis period or not, this song marks where Lennon was beginning to feel dissatisfaction with the life of being a Beatle, among other things.
The immediacy of the performance brings the sense of isolation home so strongly that it’s curious to think that it was probably not heard this way when it was released. The sense of unstoppable motion conveys Lennon’s – as well as his audience’s – personal growing pains. As the masks in I’m A Loser suggest, Lennon feels trapped in his Beatle role, and here he sound taunted even by his fellow Beatles.

Most of the images on the thread have timed out from the uploader's photo storage server, but here are a couple that are still there:
