Unmissable new campaign for BBC ONE

BBC ONE is launching its first channel promotion trail on 12 April.

Rush Hour is the on-air complement of the BBC ONE - THE ONE off-air campaign which launched on outdoor sites three weeks ago. The integrated campaign has been created by BBC ONE’s advertising partner Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO.

The new film features a man leaving work through his office window and crossing the gridlocked city via the rooftops in order to get home in time to watch his favourite programme on BBC ONE.

There are no special effects in this film. All the action was filmed for real, including a breathtaking 23 feet building-to-building leap, 200 feet above the street.

Christine Madden, Head of Marketing for BBC ONE comments: "This new campaign evokes the new spirit of BBC ONE. Rush Hour dramatises the anticipation of a favourite programme in the most breath-taking and exciting fashion and illustrates BBC ONE’s bold new positioning."

The campaign will run for four weeks on BBC Television and will be accompanied by programme-specific campaigns to support highlights of the new season of unmissable programmes including Auf Wiedersehen Pet, Cutting It and Spooks.
