CampaignLive continues to break the top industry stories. Here are
just some of the headlines this week:
- Wednesday 10.18 British tycoon to mount anti-EMU ad campaign
- Tuesday 16.34 McCann-Erickson hires a deputy managing director
- Tuesday 16.32 Cadbury Schweppes searches for new agency for Oasis

Publicis’s ads for George, the Asda supermarket’s range of clothing,
came top in our Favourite Ad poll:
1. George (Publicis) 41%
2. Scottish Tourist Board (1576) 19%
3. Save the Rhino (Rapier) 16%
4. Rubberstuffers (Mitchell Patterson Grime Mitchell) 14%
5. Kleenex (Roose & Partners) 11%
Some surprising results in the Swingometer this week. First, it seems
the ad industry actually liked Renault’s Papa and Nicole campaign. Asked
if you would miss the pair, 56 per cent voted yes.
Second, few appear to share the view of the Billett Consultancy that
high quality drama will be the key to ITV’s future success - with 71 per
cent saying it will not.
Next week will see the inauguration of the first in a series of regular
live interviews on the site (see page 5).
