In 1970 the A.C.T.T. established a Television Commission composed of producers and technicians from amongst its membership to investigate the structure and operation of television in the United Kingdom. During the course of this extensive study — a kind of pre-Annan — the Commission prepared occasional papers on particular issues of importance. One such paper — ‘One Week’ — was a survey of television coverage of industrial affairs in the week of 8–14 January 1971. ‘One Week’ concluded that industrial relations were covered in ‘a superficial and haphazard manner’ and found many instances of scandalous partiality.
