WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
The 3 shortlist. Short it is, given that there's only 49 mins 3 secs
an unproven start-up, a digital agency and Euro RSCG
to pick between. The mobile phone company is taking a
risk that it can ill-afford. Why not add another shop
to the list, just to be on the safe side?

The Sky/Virgin Media spat. There's nothing quite 28 mins 56 secs
like two giant media owners slugging it out in public.
Enormous fun to watch (if you're not a Sky shareholder
or Virgin Media subscriber, that is).

What's happened to The Red Brick Road? Mother's 17 mins 39 secs
Day ads for Tesco show the agency is still alive,
but it's hardly kicking. It's attracted some of
adland's finest talent, but, beyond Tesco, we're not
exactly seeing the fruits of its labour.
