The Media Show was a documentary series shown on Channel 4 in 1990 and 1991.
As the title suggests, the show dealt with topical media related items.
In this show, the history of London Weekend Television is explored and some participants give their thoughts on the then impending 1991 franchise race, in which LWT lost their franchise.
This is a fascinating documentary as the inception and initial running of LWT wasn't smooth at all.
I do not know the exact transmission date, the individual episode number nor which series of The Media show this was taken from.
Presented and narrated by Emma Freud
Interviewees include :
Clive Irving - Co-founder of LWT
Frank Muir - Former head of Entertainment
Humphrey Burton - Former Head of Music, Arts & Drama
Jimmy Hill - Former head of Sport
Doreen Stephens - Former head of Childrens programmes
Sir Dennis Forman - Former managing director of Granada
Sir Bryan Young - Former director general of the I.T.A
Lord Swaythling - Former board member at LWT
Kenith Tross - Kestrel Productions
I have included the single commercial break for historical interest.
