Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Roll up, roll up. Agencies are gagging to get a place 17 mins 27 secs
on the Eurostar shortlist. All the hallmarks of a
quality account are in place: talented client, exciting
brand and chunky spend. Let's just hope it won't be a
Hurrell and Dawson stitch-up.

Sweaty foreheads at Ofcom. No sooner does it get 31 mins 52 secs
the thorny junk-food ad ruling out the way, than it's
called upon to look at Sky's cheeky new 17.9 per cent
stake in ITV.

Poor old Malcolm Earnshaw. His sworn ambition to 22 mins 36 secs
prevent a junk-food ad ban was thwarted just a few
months before he retires as ISBA director-general.

Beattie McGuinness Bungay's spot for Carling. Is it 7 mins 58 secs
an ad, or a clip from Bill Oddie's nature programme?
