I'll Google the answer after I have made my guess. It was certainly during Thatcher's premiership. Radio broadcasting was first but television I'll plump for 1990.

I must say pretty close.

1. When was the Prime Ministers Questions first televised?

Answer : Margaret Thatcher takes on Neil Kinnock in the first televised PMQs. The tradition of Prime Minister's Questions was first established in the 19th Century, being formalised by Harold Macmillan in 1961. Most people were unable to avail of the spectacle until the introduction of TV cameras to Parliament in 1989.
