The History Channel unveils a TV advertising campaign this week. The drive highlights the channel’s diversity by featuring a similarly broad range of famous faces. The ads will feature England 1966 World Cup striker Geoff Hurst, musician Malcom McLaren, actor Simon Callow, and champion hurdler Sally Gunnell. Each star talks about how parts of their lives have passed into history. The four 60-second ads were devised by design and advertising agency Ortmans Young International. The four-week campaign will run across cable and satellite stations.
