That Was the Week That Was, informally TWTWTW or TW3, is 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.

From the BBC TV series 'That Was The Week That Was'. Outras versões (3 de 3) Ver tudo.

The main figure behind the Week That Was is former Field Music member Peter Brewis. With help from a wide range of musicians including David Brewis and Andrew Moore (making the album a mini-Field Music reunion of sorts), the self-titled debut is a lush and lovely slice of modern pop. The group's sound is no great departure from that of Field Music; it's just as arty, angular, and unfailingly melodic throughout. The main difference is that it's more arranged and complex thanks to the variety of players and instruments

This was always going to be a long week. Monday I stayed in the office until 19:00. The answer was, unfortunately: no very much. Tuesday – IVF clinic.

The programme's title is believed to be a conscious echo of the Shell Oil advertising slogan "That's Shell – That Was!", widely used on posters from the early 1930s onwards (implying that a Shell-powered vehicle was out of sight in an instant). 1963 Radio Times cover promotes the return of the programme for a second series ") sung by Millicent Martin, referring to news of the week just gone. Lance Percival sang a topical calypso each week.

The Week That Was is a new project from Peter Brewis, who’s also a key player in the Sunderland band, Field Music. The first, self-titled Week That Was album has finally snared me, though. In many ways, it’s not the sort of thing I often go for, since it fetishises a certain prissy sound from the ‘80s, all Fairlights and Linn drums, and references to Peter Gabriel in the press biog. The Week That Was strike me as taking the polished raw materials of the more adventurous ‘80s pop, then reinventing them, in a way which isn’t utterly unlike two firm favourites round these parts, Wild Beasts and Yeasayer. I need to go back to those Field Music records, I think.
