Len Fulford: Director behind the 'Go to work on an egg' and Guinness 'toucan' commercials

Len Fulford was one of the most successful and sought-after directors of television and cinema commercials during the industry's glory years, from the 1960s through to the 1990s. He directed many of the great Guinness ads of the '70s and '80s, including some featuring the famous toucan. But he was perhaps best-remembered among his peers for the massively-successful 1960s "Go to work on an egg" TV commercial campaign for Britain's Egg Marketing Board.
