An Anglia TV documentary about the successful Allen, Brady & Marsh advertising company, in particular, featuring the flamboyant and self-promoting Chairman of ABM, Peter Marsh, who loved quirky and highly theatrical pitch presentations that not everyone in the advertising world approved of, but nonetheless secured big name clients such as Woolworths and British Rail.
