    I watched a lot of American International Pictures' stuff on non-prime-time TV when I was a kid. My brother watched more of it; he was more into horror movies than I was.

    Interesting to me, anyway:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norway_Debate

    The Norway debate is regarded as a high-point in British Parliamentary history, as it occurred at a pivotal moment in a battle for the nation's survival, and showed that individual backbench members of parliament could assert their power. When asked to choose the most historic and memorable speech for a volume commemorating the centenary of Hansard as an official report of the House of Commons, former Speaker Betty Boothroyd chose Leo Amery's speech in the debate, remarking "Amery, by elevating patriotism above party, showed the Back Bencher's power to help change the course of history".
