A relatively short-lived but highly influential sketch show, The Frost Report was presented by David Frost.

Among regular performers were John Cleese, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett.

Among the writers were many who later became the leading authors of British comedy television programmes. John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, David Nobbs and Peter Tinniswood (among others) all contributed sketches for the programme.

Each programme had a distinct satirical, political or social 'theme, with sketches and monologues written accordingly.

The best-remembered sketches are probably the "three classes" items involving John Cleese (Upper Class), Ronnie Barker (Middle Class) and Ronnie Corbett (Working Class).
