Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Luke Johnson's poor performance on the Today 8 hrs 20 mins
Programme; Andy Duncan's outfit at the Oxford Media
Conference; can Jade Goody turn it around; should
Big Brother be axed ...?

Under pressure: Publicis' management team. The 49 mins 18 secs
agency's had a stable decade, but with Asda, MFI and
the Post Office bolting, the agency's safe old formula
is no longer working.

Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R's conflict shop, 11 mins 28 secs
called Swarm. Lots of people are talking about it, a
few appear to have jobs at it, and despite official
denials, the new agency appears to be well on its way
to launch. But why all the secrecy? Could it be that
WPP hasn't quite cleared its new Alfa Romeo account
win with Ford? Oops.
