This Week

Rediffusion Television’s current affairs programme now in its eleventh year.

“…earns a salute on the Tenth Anniversary of ‘This Week’.” Barbara Brandenberger, The Observer. January 2.

“The report of the Hull North by-election was another stylish piece of work… combined impartiality with some elegant wit in presentation.” The Times, January 28.

“I enjoyed ‘This Week’s’ cross-examination of the Leader of the Opposition.” Nancy Banks-Smith, The Sun. February 25.

“‘This Week’ is undeniably a leader in the legitimate snap judgement business.” Geoffrey Nicholson, Daily Mail. September 28.

Rediffusion’s full current affairs operation completed last week by two editions of ‘This Week’ grittily devoted to redundancy in (a) the car industry, and (b) the pits. Quite simply, this represents such an advance in enterprise, independence and responsibility over anything this weekday company has offered in the past decade that it would be churlish not to applaud it.” Philip Purser, Sunday Telegraph. October 23.

“…the account of a terrifying problem (hunger in India) which every day seems to aggravate made ‘This Week’s’ quietness as disturbing as it should be.” The Times. May 20.

“Llew Gardner’s gently needling interview with Ian Smith for Rediffusion’s ‘This Week’ had more impact than any amount of moralising from the less intransigent.” Ruth Hall, Sunday Times. September 11
