It’s the golden age of British advertising. The History of Advertising Trust podcast will feature interviews with Dave Trott, Sir Alan Parker (director of Bugsy Malone) and Hugh Hudson (director of Chariots of Fire), Sir Frank Lowe and Judie Lannon.
Also, listeners will hear from Jeremy Sinclair, the ‘quiet man’ of British advertising, about the role which the ‘Labour Isn’t Working’ campaign played in Margaret Thatcher’s rise to power. Listeners will also get to hear how advertising restrictions affected the industry, and how definitive campaigns like Tesco’s ‘Every Little Helps’, and After Eight’s ‘Dinner Party’ were created.
Hosted and co-produced by Jack Meggitt-Phillips, the podcast is launching with a 10-part series of 10-minute episodes. The first episodes are already available. New episodes launch every Wednesday morning on iTunes.
