The team

Patsy Barry

Patsy has over 22 years of TV admin experience. She started at Leo Burnett, where she had 9 happy years learning her trade. In 2000, Patsy moved to Ogilvy and spent almost 10 years broadening her understanding of all aspects of broadcast administration. This includes TV and radio playouts, repeat fees, buyouts, music clearance, child licenses, estimating, and artist contracts. Patsy loves her work and uses diligence, integrity and humour in everything she does.

In November 2009, she established Telly Traffic with Laura Dempsey.

Peggy Cosgrove

Peggy is our resident Greek Goddess. With 10 years experience at IMD, she is also one of our resident experts in all aspects of TV and delivery. A keen foodie, when she's not smashing plates, Peggy can be found devouring dishes in the restaurants of Soho. Another great addition to the good ship TT.

Marium Saeed

Marium has extensive knowledge of all aspects of broadcast admin gained in a career spanning 14 years. As well as ad agency experience at CHI and Lowe, she has also worked at independent admin shops and music production companies. Giving her a well-rounded expertise to go with her friendly nature, her unflappable demeanour and her dodgy taste in football teams.

Emma Watts

With 15 years of experience at top agencies, including Ogilvy, TBWA and AMV BBDO, Emma Watts is more than quietly confident in all aspects of supply. When she’s not being very buttoned down in her job, she’s lacing up her running shoes or unrolling her yoga matt. So, all in all, she’s a very healthy addition to the TT gang.

Emily Eshelby

We’re pleased as punch to have Emily aboard the good ship TT. A recent Broadcast Journalism graduate, Emily is the possessor of an incredibly fast-learning mind and a very pleasant disposition. We’re looking forward to having her make headlines at Telly Traffic for some time to come.

Katie Schartau

Katie is an A* member of team Telly Traffic. A recent school leaver, she gets top marks for being bright, friendly and keener than keen to learn everything there is to know about business affairs. And as a trained dancer, it’s hardly surprising that picking up new moves every day comes very easily to her.

Our Philosophy

We specialise in building close relationships with our clients.

Advertising is a people business, and agencies rely on and trust us as an extension of their production department, at their service at all times.

That's why we are the only centrally located broadcast admin services company in the business. Our office in Newburgh Street, Soho, provides a welcoming environment for our clients to pop in whenever they like for a face-to-face chat.

Our business plan also reflects our philosophy of maintaining close relationships. We grow our client base sensibly, to make sure we never compromise our quality of service.

Our clients

We're lucky enough to work with a variety of clients with very different needs, both in the UK and abroad.

Our relationships include:

  • Full service remote business affairs department for ad agencies.
  • External support to TV broadcast departments in large/network ad agencies.
  • One-off projects.
  • Helping start-up agencies implement new systems.
  • Guiding non-traditional ad agencies through the production process.
  • Adapting commercials for the UK with international clients.
  • Direct to clients.

Give us a call and start a working relationship with us.

What we do:



Uniquely for a business affairs company, we have a senior TV producer on site. So, as well as taking all your admin headaches away, we can provide relief from all those painful little production jobs too.

For example – that US commercial that needs re-editing, re-voicing, re-titling, Clearcast clearing and clocking to play out in the UK – we can take care of it all. No fuss, or bother.

In addition, our sister company, Telly Producers, provides permanent and freelance producers to ad agencies and post houses. And with our other sister, Telly Voices, offering top voiceover talent, we really can help with every aspect of getting a commercial on air.
