Maybe you’re tangled in the drama of Coronation Street, or perhaps you’re a sneaky Peaky Blinders enthusiast. But what about the unsung heroes of British television? No need to book a flight — the DFT is bringing the best “adverts” from across the pond to the big screen. From the tongue-in-cheeky to the masterfully inventive and effective, this showcase of the year’s best British advertisements are sure to have you sold.
