WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
It's an ill wind that blows nobody any good. The 1hr 10 mins
impending recession looks like scuppering any further
government curbs on advertising.

Are the days of the BBC playing with a stacked deck 42 mins 39 secs
numbered? The new communications minister, Lord Carter,
suggests Auntie could face having to share the licence
fee in future.

Not only is Des O'Connor going to appear in the 16 mins 25 secs
Tesco Christmas ad, he's also going to sing in it.
Eric Morecambe must be spinning in his grave.

If Liz Hurley wants to generate more publicity, 3 mins 15 secs
wouldn't she have been better doing I'm A Celebrity ...
Get Me Out of Here! than appearing in fur company ads?
