From 1972 until 1993 (or was it later?), it was part of the BBC's standard coverage that they would do a weekly programme during the world championship match. They kept it going even during the lengthy matches between Korchnoi and Karpov in 1978 and Kasparov and Karpov in 1984-5. In some cases, they had to resort to more general chess news or content as with only three games a week, and the availability of postponements, it was possible to get a week where the only game to review was a fifteen or twenty move draw.
It's possible the BBC didn't cover the 1986 match in London and the Soviet Union, as Thames had the rights.
The established Master Game team of Jeremy James and William Hartston were the usual presenters, although other British IMs and GMs of the era would also feature. They may even have used the display methods from the Master Game before the programs took over. In 1972, I seem to think they just put a camera in front of a manual demo board.
I think calling it "World Chess Report" is a slight distortion, as it was about the World Chess Championships and that I think was its title.
(edit) The dates for the BBC coverage in the gettyimages link suggest the programmes continued until 1995. Beyond that the PCA cycle collapsed and Kirsan replaced the FIDE one with a knock-out. It also looks as if sometimes the Candidates matches were covered as well, during the rise of Kasparov for example. (/edit)
