Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Tough times at Leo Burnett. The agency resigned its 1 hr 52 mins
£8 million Strongbow account less than a year
ago to take on Beck's. It just about squeezes out
one TV commercial, when, boom, Beck's calls a global
review. Ooops.

BBC Magazines' Project Phoenix. A news magazine 56 mins 11 secs
based on its Newsnight and Panorama strands sounds
like a good idea.

Mike Soutar. The abruptness of his exit from IPC 1 hr 39 mins
suggests the publisher feels pretty threatened
by his rumoured launch plans.

The Yell pitch. With Miles Calcraft Briginshaw Duffy 30 mins 58 secs
and Leagas Delaney removed from the shortlist,
Mother's appointment comes a little closer.
