This Week was ITV’s answer to Panorama.

thisweek_desmondwilcoxThe first edition had a film about Dr Otto John’s defection in West Germany and an interview with a television quiz winner, and was presented by Leslie Mitchell from a restaurant in London’s Lower Regent Street.

Sometimes cramming in as many as half a dozen topics into a 30-minute programme, This Week continued until 1978 when it was renamed TV Eye.

The title was revived eight years later and ran until 1992. Leslie Mitchell’s successors in the hot seat have included Brian Connell and Ludovic Kennedy.
