Switch on your TV we may pick him up on Channel 4...and Channel 5 and ITV and lots of other independent TV stations actually.
It would seem that the advertising chaps here in the UK at the moment favour the popular recording artist David Bowie to advertise their products, and in particular his song "Heroes". Following on from the lead set by Kodak, Microsoft and insurance company CGU who have all used the song in advertising campaigns, (the CGU ad is still running as it happens) Channel 4 are now using "Heroes" to advertise their three-parter 'Escape From Colditz'.
'Escape From Colditz' is a documentary series which uses archive footage and personal testimony to chronicle the often spectacular escape attempts from the notorious Second World War PoW camp. The ad shows some of this archive footage including the shot above which bares the legend DB!! Having missed part one of this three-parter I have no clue as to its meaning? Anybody out there know?...Answers on a postcard to the usual address please.
Directly after the DB building sequence the clock shot below is shown... does that 'Time' seem familiar? "I look at my watch it says......"
