* British commercial TV is not officially allowed product placement. But it gets around this by a process where somehow the adverts reinforce the theme of the show and the two mutually feed off each other. For instance, ''CoronationStreet'' is a popular soap about community and close-knit neighbours. It isn't a complete random coincidence that means the advert breaks have a higher-than-normal proportion of building and property development adverts for s such as Barratt Homes. similarly, feelgood holiday comedy ''Benidorm'' is screening in a cold wet January; the advert breaks are chocca with tantalising sunny package holidays. Also, a rather old advert featuring Creator/JoanCollins came up three times in the commercial breaks during the show. While it had nothing to do with sunny holidays, Ms Collins is going to be joining the cast of the show quite soon... mutual reinfocement between adverts and programme!

Sometimes, an advertisement will look similar to the show that it's running with. This is designed to catch those who are fast-forwarding through the ad breaks.

Sometimes, an advertisement will look similar to deliberately resemble the show that it's running with. This is designed to catch those who are fast-forwarding through through, or just not paying attention to, the ad breaks.
