Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Royal Mail's digital pitch. With a budget of £28 42 mins 18
secs million, new-business directors are really rolling
up their sleeves - especially those on commission. Some
individuals stand to make as much as £1 million
if successful.

How things change. A couple of years ago, no London 9 mins 12 secs
ad agency was willing to pitch for the Tory Party
account. But now David Cameron's in, replete with an
appreciation for headline-grabbing spin, adland has
located its deep-held affection for the colour blue.
Too late. Looks like Karmarama has stolen a march on
everyone.

Chatshow or flatshow? More than two million 7 mins 54 secs
viewers tuned in to Charlotte Church's new show on
Channel 4, but how many will be back for more?
