WHAT TOPICS HAVE THE INDUSTRY BEEN DISCUSSING THIS WEEK?
THE TALK TIME SPENT
Want to secure a higher place in the Gunn Report's 11 mins 10 secs
annual creative network rankings? Young & Rubicam
has learned the secret to global awards success:
poach Tony Granger. The man, now joining Y&R from
Saatchi & Saatchi, knows the magic formula for
award-magnet press ads.

The Independent's advertising review. Lovely brand 32 mins 15 secs
to work with and a fantastic creative opportunity
(remember the Cannes Grand Prix), but not known for
its bottom-line-improving capacity.

Who'd have thought it? I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out 5 mins 49 secs
of Here! beaten in the ratings by the BBC's costume
drama Cranford. The line-up hasn't yet won over the
viewing public, though going up against Dame Judi
was always going to be a challenge.
