TV That Was The Week That Was (BBC 1962-1963, David Frost, Millicent Martin) Published 4 years ago on March 30, 2015 Satirical comedy That Was The Week That Was was the first to take pot shots at the establishment, incredibly popular, talked about and influential and also much disliked by the Government. David Frost headlined and also appearing were Kenneth Cope, Millicent Martin, William Rushton, Roy Kinnear, Lance Percival, Bernard Levin, David Kernan, Al Mancini, Timothy Lang (season 1) and Robert Lang (season 2). Writers included David Frost, Dennis Potter, Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall, David Nobbs and Peter Tinniswood, Kenneth Tynan, Johnny Speight, John Braine, John Antrobus and Bernard Levin. Each week Millicent Martin sang a topical song each week over the theme tune. Despite only running for two series TW3 as the show was mostly known has been hugely influential, most satirical comedy since owes more than a nod of gratitude to this production.
