That Was the Week That Was

1964, TV Show

`TW3,' as it was called, was a snappy blend of political satire and irreverent music numbers. A range of current events, religion, civil rights, social issues and more were all lampooned in skits and songs (composed primarily by Tom Lehrer) with titles like `Smut,' `Pollution,' `The Folk Song Army,' `National Brotherhood Week' and `The Vatican Rag.' Its performers included Nancy Ames, Alan Alda and Buck Henry. David Frost was featured on both the original British series and the U.S. version.
