This Week started back in the early 2000’s and each week it takes a look at the political headlines to discuss among a panel.

The BBC are choosing to discontinue to show without 69-year-old Andrew and wrote on Twitter that he is ‘inimitable’.
Fran Unsworth, BBC Director of News, says: “We couldn’t imagine This Week without the inimitable Andrew Neil, one of Britain’s best political interviewers. After 16 years, Andrew is bowing out of late-night presenting on the show, at the top of his game.”
