Show Summary

Welcome to the That Was the Week That Was guide at NOTE: Although the notional length of the programme was 50 minutes, the show's actual length varied wildly. Some weeks it was allotted 30 minutes but ran for 40 or more; most weeks its official slot was 50 minutes but since they had the luxury of being the last show on at night with nothing following (except for the first three weeks of season two, when a late film was scheduled afterward with the deliberate intention of forcing TW3 to end on time - a ploy which TW3 fought back against by giving away the ending of the film during their show), it didn't matter if they ran over, so frequently they did, stretching the 50-minute slot to anything up to an hour and a half.
