BBC Four Winter/Spring 2008 
Mad Men:  (L-R) Roger Sterling (John Slattery) and Don Draper (Jon Hamm)

BBC Four Winter/Spring 2008

Mad Men

The latest series from Matthew Weiner, Emmy Award-winning writer and executive producer of The Sopranos – has its UK premiere on BBC Four this winter.


Mad Men is a glossy and beautifully rendered drama series set in Sixties New York. It delves into the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Sterling Cooper Advertising – an agency where power struggles, hard drinking and clandestine sexual exploits define the workplace and close the deals.


Created and written by executive producer Weiner, Mad Men stars Jon Hamm (We Were Soldiers), Elisabeth Moss (The West Wing) and John Slattery (Desperate Housewives).




Timeshift – The Rise And Fall Of The Ad Man


In Timeshift – The Rise And Fall Of The Ad Man, Peter York takes an insightful and witty look at the changing fortunes of British advertising with the story of the personalities who led it through its highs and lows.




Selling The Sixties


Selling The Sixties is a mesmerising blend of archive and contemporary footage exploring the post-War American golden age, when it seemed as if happiness could be bought and sold.




David Ogilvy – The First Mad Man


David Ogilvy – The First Mad Man is the story of advertising through a British-born genius, David Ogilvy, whose extremes and eccentricities are revealed by interviews with those who knew him and worked with him on his most famous campaigns.
