WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Stand back and watch the sparks fly as a new 2 hrs 3 mins
newspaper war gets under way. With News
International and Associated preparing for battle,
all we know is neither will want to blink first.

going to resign Pizza Hut. With the Arla and

little flush ...

At last, five has revealed plans for two new channels, 51 mins 11 secs
having appeared to be languishing as its rivals
forged ahead with their digital launches. But will
five US and five life provide the much-needed shot
in the arm?

Rival publishers are gagging to know more about 49 mins 54 secs
Dennis' project "monkey". Will it be a T&A men's
weekly as predicted?
