100 GREATEST ... (THE 100 GREATEST TV ADS)
100 GREATEST ... (THE 100 GREATEST TV ADS)
Remember Nick Kamen in the laundrette, the Smash Martians, and the R-Whites secret lemonade drinker? Television ads are an integral part of pop culture and by their very nature they are compulsive viewing - they have to be to sell their product. Presented by GRAHAM NORTON, The 100 Greatest TV Ads counts down the all time greatest 100 ads as voted by the British public, in the first TV poll of its kind. From the innocent '50s to the streetwise '90s advertisements tell as much about the current culture and aspirations of society as they do the products themselves. The 100 Greatest TV Ads tells the stories behind the ads - how the idea came about, how the ad was made, why it was banned or what happened to its star. GAIL PORTER will be taking a global view of some ads you won't have seen, a handful of classics that had the bad manners to be made abroad. The programme shows all 100 ads mixed with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the advertising industry movers and shakers who made the ads and the stars who feature in them including: GARY LINEKER, MELANIE SYKES, GRIFF RHYS JONES, LORRAINE CHASE, VICTOR KIAM and directors TONY KAY and ALAN PARKER.
