GALLERY 14: The Biography Channel - Plane

Less is more in this entertaining new spot for Sky's The Biography Channel, which "takes viewers into the world of exceptional and fascinating people 24 hours a day". It may be a low-budget spot (shot on a fuselage on a field at Gatwick) but the combination of a simple, universal and comical idea from the channel's new agency, Leith London, and spot-on performances (so real they make you cringe), ensure we'll be tempted to tune in.
