The Harlech House of Graphics Features - Pictures
A selection of images from

Langdon Cartoon

Another ex-TWW employee, Ray Bradley sent in this Langdon cartoon from 1967 dealing with TWW's failed bid. Clearly, their London base was regarded as a significant factor in the loss of their franchise.

Next, a collection of HTV Wales publicity pictures from the late eighties.

Finally a "fun" game to pass away those long summer evenings. Can you help Lord Harlech select the correct route to franchise success?

It's a difficult task and on your journey, you must avoid treading on the toes of the ITA's Lord Hill, bitter exchanges in The Times and an absolutely furious Lord Derby of TWW.
