Comedy Connections

BBC Two and BBC One documentary. 47 episodes (6 series), 2003 - 2008. Features Julia Sawalha and Doon Mackichan.

Series 4, Episode 7 - That Was The Week That Was

That Was The Week That Was changed not just comedy, but television, as the BBC was being actively disrespectful towards politicians, royalty and religion, all previously seen as untouchable. Among the facts uncovered are: how the programme's working title stuck; how the director letting the cameras be seen on camera was regarded as avant-garde; and how presenter David Frost managed to get the programme scheduled after TW3 was taken off air.
