DescriptionTwo adverts promoting The Observer Magazine's travel guide.

The adverts show packages in brown paper with labels bearing the names of popular holiday destinations moving onto an airport luggage carousel. A package wrapped in green paper emerges and is upwrapped to reveal a stack of Observer Magazines. The commentary for the week 1 adverts, and for OBS/9/1/1/44/2c is read by one man, and the commentary for the rest of OBS/9/1/1/44/2 by another.

Commentary begins: "If you need a holiday, but you're tired of the usual packages, try something very very different..."

(Unspoken) tagline: "A different set of values. A different kind of paper."
