I learned in the LA Times this morning that David Frost died. He did have a significant influence in my life, in that I learned about the power of satire. My brother always told me that my early attempts at it were sarcastic rather than satirical. I was a great fan of That Was The Week That Was (TW3 the American version) which came on before Jack Paar. There appears to be no existent recording of that program although the Tom Leher songs are still popular (in Russia).
This, I think, is the last TW3 from Great Britain. In keeping with the celebration of the March on Washington, this episode includes a reference to the situation in Mississippi, "I want to go back to Mississippi" sung by Millicent Martin. The l language is disturbing, but it would not have been surprising then (I can vouch for this).
The segment starts at 4:50. Expect to hear lyrics like:
"Where the Mississippi mud
Kinda mingles with the blood
Of the n----rs who are hanging
From the branches of the trees"
"cutting up a chocolate-colored koon.”
My memory at the time was Five, Six, Seven, Eight - We Don't Want to integrate.
My memory was that we were seriously sick.
