    The adverts don't smoke, and they don't advertise tobacco anymore either.

    Of course, cigars and pipe tobacco was advertised well into the mid 1990s. Used to love that Des O'Connor / Russ Abbot series of Castella cigar adverts, especially the fisherman one. They are on YT.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Cigarette adverts might have run a bit longer at the cinema.

    They also had that white strapline seen at the bottom of newspaper and magazine advertisements:

    Low to Middle Tar
    SMOKING DAMAGES YOUR HEALTH
    Chief Medical Officers, etc

    Of course, that strapline didn't exist prior to when cigarettes were advertised on TV in the early to mid 1960s. By the early 1970s, newspapers and magazines used the "EVERY PACKET CARRIES A GIOOVERNMENT HEALTH WARNING" message.
