WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Juan Cabral, the magic fairy dust at Fallon. He's the 8 mins 54 secs
talk of many a lunch table as industry speculators try
to guess what his next move might be (although there
are no signs of the twentysomething leaving Fallon just
yet). Most think he would never jump ship for a big
network agency job. Back to Buenos Aires perhaps?

The logic of Ofcom; difficult to decipher. The 37 mins 11 secs
regulator warns of a decline in the quality of
children's programming at the same time as imposing
TV ad bans that squeeze the income of the
programme-makers. Duh!

ZenithOptimedia's decision to pull out of the 17 mins 51 secs
massive UK Coca-Cola pitch, citing some kind of
weird international conflict that had previously
slipped its mind. Err, what?
