Richard Laxton

Comedies, dramas, TVCs... Richard Laxton excels at directing all three. From his hugely successful sitcom 'Him & Her' (which won him a BAFTA) to BAFTA-nominated drama 'Burton and Taylor' plus 'Mum' (BAFTA-winning sitcom with Lesley Manville), everything he touches turns to, er, BAFTAs.

His commercials for Lotto featuring real people are also beautifully done; putting each person at ease and creating a heartwarming atmosphere.

"Best Friends"
Money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy you a troupe of male Swedish dancers. Lotto's latest batch of vox pops tackle a thorny subject: what would you buy your best friend? The responses range from the practical to the fantastical. Alas, one woman's hopes of a Vegas getaway are quickly dashed. With friends like these, eh?
