Not So Much A Programme, More A Way Of Life

1 9 6 4 – 1 9 6 5 (UK)

This short-lived topical satire sketch show was developed as a replacement for That Was The Week That Was which was taken off the air in advance of the 1964 general election.

Produced by Ned Sherrin, the show featured David Frost, William Rushton, John Bird, Michael Crawford, Eleanor Bron and Roy Hudd and ran three times a week on BBC1.

Equally aggressive in its sardonic treatment of politics and current affairs, it, in turn, gave way to a successor series, BBC3 in 1965.
