From Variety magazine, Diary learns that the film-maker Tony Kaye is to direct a new thriller. It's about a top agency executive who comes to work on a Friday only to learn it's actually Sunday and she's a suspect in a murder case. The film's title? Paranoia... So you've just picked up millions in the acquisition of the year and holiday time looms. Where to? The Maldives? The Caribbean? Not if you're Tom Knox, the joint managing director of Delaney Lund Knox Warren & Partners. He splashed out on a camping trip to France... Diary salutes the singing talents of Hooper Galton's Oliver Lewis-Barclay. In these procurement-obsessed times, where clients are looking to save every penny, Barclay has lent his vocal chords (finely tuned from his days as a choirboy) to the jingle behind the current Nando's campaign. Barclay was apparently aiming to sound like a crazy Portuguese man. Well, mission accomplished... To The Ivy to wish a happy 60th birthday to Peter Travis, who is handing over the day-to-day control of cdp-travissully and becomes its part-time chairman. Does this mean Diary will be spared the nerve-jangling experience of getting a lift from Travis, whose mild-mannered personality is transformed into that of a Kosovan minicab driver once behind the wheel?
