Autumn Newsletter 60 Years

Our Autumn Newsletter is here

22nd September 2015

60 years ago today UK commercial TV was born, with the first advert being broadcast on ITV at 8:12pm.


Our Autumn Newsletter celebrates that anniversary, and is also chock-full of forward-looking advice, updates and background on what we get up to behind the scenes.


Here’s just a selection of the treats inside…
