WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK? THE TALK TIME SPENT What's going on at WPP's Italian operation? 51 mins 56 secs WPP has appointed the corporate investigators Kroll and Deloitte to review its media buying operations.It seems there's a scandal brewing. Graham Duff love. Has anyone got anything nasty to 58 mins 34 secs say about the man? IPG chief Michael Roth's appearance on the podium 21 mins 29 secs at ISBA's 9 March conference. A must-see event. Let's hope the Q & A session establishes what the client world really thinks about volume discounts. No more Celebrity Big Brother to while away the long 45 mins 43 secs winter evenings. Now all we have to look forward to is advertisers using the programme's "celebrities" to flog their wares.
