Whitlam Appears On NBC’s Meet The Press

In the United States, Prime Minister Gough Whitlam appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press program.

Meet the Press began on radio in 1945 and then on television from 1947. Billed as the longest-running program on United States television, it was and is broadcast on Sunday mornings.

The interview was moderated by the program’s host, Lawrence E. Spivak, one of the program’s original interviewers and hosts. Spivak retired as host in 1975, two days before Whitlam’s dismissal, and died in 1994, aged 93.

Whitlam is shown below sitting next to Spivak on the set of Meet the Press.
