EAST WIND: That Was The Week That Was


(Published May 24, 2017)

“That Was the Week That Was” ran from 1962-63 on BBC. Presented by David Frost, it broke ground in TV comedy by lampooning the establishment and political figures. The American version of TWTWTW aired Saturday night on NBC in 1964-65 hosted by Frost; and featured parodies, debates, song and stand-up by the likes of Woody Allen, Steve Allen, Mike Nichols and Elaine May.
