Synopsis by Hal Erickson
First telecast by BBC2 in 1972, Up Sunday was an irreverent late-night satirical news program in the tradition of That Was the Week That Was. A team of talented farceurs enacted the roles of newscasters, celebrities, pedestrians, and innocent bystanders. Among the future stars in the cast were Kenny Everett and William Rushton. Lasting until the end of 1973, Up Sunday yielded over 50 episodes and two specials, Up the Market and Up Christmas.
