Diary: Water-cooler monitor

WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
The departures of Andy Sandoz and Patrick Griffith 11 mins 32 secs
from Agency Republic. Both off on holiday for a few
months? There's a whiff of smelly rat about this one.

Get a job at Saatchi & Saatchi. As the only ad agency 4 mins 58 secs
in the UK that is known to the man on the street, it
looks great on the CV if you move to the non-agency world.
Just ask Lee Daley or Adam Crozier.

JWT's ad for Trident. Yep. Campaign is still getting 8 mins 29 secs
complaints about the spots.

Alan Titchmarsh. Incredible though it seems, the 29 mins 47 secs
media world is buzzing about Britain's friendliest
gardener. It seems that ITV, newly charged with
programming ambition under Michael Grade, is planning
to swoop for the Yorkshireman.
