The Carpenters (aka Carpenters: Live at the BBC) is a videotaped studio concert performed by The Carpenters in 1971.

The artists lip-synched some tunes, like "Help!" and the Burt Bacharach Medley, but most of the songs on the BBC Concert were performed 'as live'. It was recorded on September 25 and aired on BBC1 on November 6, 1971. VH-1 has televised the concert for American audiences, however in order to fit it into a half-hour time slot with commercials, they left out "And When He Smiles", "I Fell in Love with You", "That on the Road Look", and "Lust for Earl and the Married Woman". In addition to singing, Karen also plays the drums during some of the songs.
