In creating That Was The Week That Was, Ned Sherrin changed not just comedy, but television. When the BBC’s Director General, Hugh Carleton Greene, wanted a programme to ‘prick the pomposity of public figures’ Sherrin, a current affairs producer, was the man for the job. The show hit the air in 1962 and was an immediate hit with its lampooning of politicians, royalty and religion. David Frost was the host, there was a discussion section with Bernard Levin and Sherrin added Willie Rushton, Kenneth Cope, Timothy Birdsall, Roy Kinnear, Lance Percival and singers Millicent Martin and David Kernan to the mix. Narrated by Doon Mackichan. Interviewees include Ned Sherrin, Sir David Frost, Millicent Martin, Kenneth Cope, Lance Percival and Denis Norden.
