WHAT TOPICS HAS THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
The election, the election, the election. Is there any 3hrs 2mins
other topic this week? And yes, we know it stole the
show in this slot last week, too. But let's be honest,
it puts all that navel-gazing over the typeface on your
next poster into perspective doesn't it?

The demise of i-level. Just two years after selling out 57mins
in a deal that valued the company at £45 million,
it's gone into administration. From the passionate calls
to Campaign on the subject, quite a few people feel the
whole mess is a scandal: i-level, they said, was trading
well, making money and had a viable future.

More retro advertising. Welcome back the Shake 'n' 14mins
Vac woman. Cue all the inevitable features in the national
media on why we like to look back to the golden days of our
youth. Duh.
