Beak Street Bugle celebrates 60 years of TV advertising with HAT

Posted in News, on January 26, 2015

Our online magazine and email newsletter,The Beak Street Bugle, celebrates 60 years of TV commercials in the UK in partnership with the History of Advertising Trust, HAT.

HAT is a wonderful archive of advertising, including TV, that seeks to preserve and provide access to advertising’s history, to enhance its future.

The Beak Street Bugle has commissioned HAT to bring their collection alive through ten items from the HAT collection.

The first article to appear on the BSB focusses on what the advertising industry predicted that TV advertising would do for advertisers, when it started in 1955. Inevitably, most of the predictions about it were way off the mark and provide entertaining reading.
