What topics has the industry been discussing this week?

THE TALK TIME SPENT

Is it about time the BBC was forced to compete on 1 hr 25 mins
a level playing-field? ISBA says the corporation's
competitive advantage increasingly inhibits advertisers'
effective communication.

What an uplifting night the Fast Forward pitching 42 mins 10 secs
event proved to be. Who says adland is struggling to
attract sharp and inquiring young minds?

Alan Bishop's swapping of COI to become the chief 26 mins 30 secs
executive of the Southbank Centre. Sounds the ideal
job for the former Saatchi & Saatchi international
chairman to reclaim his "party animal" reputation.

Can there be any more half-baked idea than the 14 mins
Conservatives' proposal to encourage socially responsible
programming?
