Concerns[edit]

The article previously stated:

The first 7 Up programme was shown as part of World in Action in 1963...

I've corrected both the title and the year for consistency with the IMDB entry, which states that it's Seven Up! and it was released in 1964. (Both of these facts are corroborated in a recent The Onion AV review of the DVD set, except that the exclamation point is stripped from the title. [1], though link will expire in a few days.) If someone could find a source that states that it was aired in 1963, then that would be much appreciated. --LostLeviathan 08:56, 20 Dec 2004 (UTC)

The Economic League[edit]

Am I right in thinking that it was World in Action that did an exposé of the Economic League and its' methods of blacklisting people? I remember a bizarre sequence where the journalists tried to confront a member of the organisation, which led to a chase on foot. Not too long afterwards, the organisation either wound up or changed its' name. Autarch 18:33, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes, it was. See Economic League (United Kingdom). Rd232 talk 15:00, 23 January 2013 (UTC)

Article[edit]

This is a great article, about a programme from the days UK television was worth watching.

Other documentaries that could do with articles (or the articles expanding) are; The World About Us, Chronicle, Man Alive, Horizon, and Disappearing World.

A similar programme was The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau which could also do with expanding.

BTW, YouTube is a goldmine for finding long forgotten and obscure clips from the 1960/70s, so for anyone interested they can probably find clips of these programmes on there. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.112.63.180 (talk) 20:54, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
