The Frost Report show first aired in 1966, a successor to the more influential That Was The Week That Was, which had come off air three years earlier because the BBC was afraid of appearing impartial in the run-up to a General Election.

The show, created as well as hosted by shrewd producer David Frost, brought together the Monty Python team for the first time, with all but American Terry Gilliam writing for the show.

It went out live with a core cast of John Cleese, Ronnie Barker, Ronnie Corbett, Sheila Steafel and Nicky Henson.

The most famous sketch in the 28 episodes broadcast over 18 months was I Know My Place, in which Cleese, Barker and Corbett represented the three social classes and looking down – or up – at each other.

The final episode, a 1967 Boxing Day special, was a greatest hits package with some new material. Titled Frost Over Britain, it won the Golden Rose at the Montreux TV festival that year.
