Great BBC Shows for Business Studies

Read on about a couple of new shows ideal for business students

I'm sure most students and teachers will have heard of the Innocent Drinks story of three friends and just a few hundred pounds.  Now Richard Reed, one of those three, is looking for new firms who have the potential to become as big as Innocent. His BBC3 show has already started, and episode 1 is on iPlayer here .

The other programme that caught my attention was 'China on Four Wheels', where two journalists take highly contrasting journeys across China- one the 'high road', and one the 'low road', attempting to illustrate the stark differences between rich & poor and urban & rural in China. Episode 1 is on iPlayer here  and episode 2 (of 2) is on BBC2/BBC HD on Sunday 16th September at 8pm. This will be of particular interest to anyone teaching/studying Edexcel GCE Business, where there's a specific focus on the unique nature of China and India in unit 3.
