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.

In 1965, Peter Marsh joined Rod Allen and Mike Brady to start Allen, Brady & Marsh advertising. At the time of this Anglia TV documentary in 1979, ABM had grown to become a top ten UK agency, the fastest-growing ad agency in Europe.
