November 24, 1962: The influential British satirical television programme That Was the Week That Was, also known as TW3, is first broadcast. It was a satirical television comedy programme on BBC Television in 1962 and 1963. It was devised, produced and directed by Ned Sherrin and presented by David Frost. An American version by the same name aired on NBC from 1964 to 1965, also featuring Frost. The programme is considered a significant element of the satire boom in the UK in the early 1960s. It broke ground in comedy through lampooning the establishment and political figures. Its broadcast coincided with coverage of the politically charged Profumo affair and John Profumo, the politician at the centre of the affair, became a target for derision. TW3 was first broadcast on Saturday, 24 November 1962. On the day following the assassination of John F. Kennedy, one day short of the show's first birthday, its coverage day went from satire to sincere regret, and a LP record album of the broadcast, "That Was The Week That Was: The British Broadcasting Corporation's Tribute To John Fitzgerald Kennedy; The BBC Telecast Saturday, November 23, 1963", was released shortly thereafter. After two successful series in 1962 and 1963, the programme did not return in 1964. The reason given by the BBC was that 1964 was an election year and political material could compromise the corporation's impartiality.
