From Wikipedia; "Washington Week previously Washington Week in Review is an American public affairs television program airing on PBS since 1967. Unlike other panel discussion shows which encourage informal (sometimes vociferous) debates as a means of presentation, Washington Week consistently follows a path of civility and moderation. Its format is that of a roundtable moderated by current host Gwen Ifill and between two and four Washington-based journalists....Washington Week in Review was first broadcast on 23 February 1967 on National Educational Television, making it the longest running show of its type on PBS. Since 1970, Washington Week has used a panel discussion format, moderated by a host. Gwen Ifill has been the host since Ken Bode was fired in 1999. Ifill shortened the name when she took over, as a sign that "the show would spend more time looking forward". In 2006, Washington Week made an agreement with National Journal which ensures that at least one National Journal reporter is on the show.  Washington Week is on PBS's national primetime lineup; because of the subscriber nature of PBS, local presentation of Washington Week is scheduled by individual stations, and air times vary by market, though the most dominant airing pattern is it leading off primetime on Friday evenings with weekend afternoon encores on most PBS member stations, and several airings per week on PBS World. The program is produced by WETA-TV in Washington, D.C."
