How does British adland see the last 122 years?

Over the weekend, a new TWO-MINUTE-LONG epic advert – of the kind they just don’t really make any more – has attempted to summarise the key events of British history over the last 122 years, all in order to sell some bread.

The interesting bit to me – aside from the token shoving in of an ethnic minority couple for a flash second – is that the 1984 Miner’s Strike and the Millennium celebrations are accorded almost as much “screen-time” as World War 1 & 2. (More details on the making of the advert via the MediaGuardian)
