Delia's papers contain notes, script and a telegram dated 15 Sep 67 for an Esso TV advert for motor oil, in which a tiger talks with the man operating the lift at Esso headquarters. We don't know if it was used or broadcast.
From the tape labels, the advertisement was produced by Cecil-Wright and Topping Films.
