Here is Tim Harford's short piece on The Factory - in series two of fifty things that made the modern economy. Factories are changing and scaling to almost unprecedented sizes.

A hat tip to Pete Shelley for flagging up this great resource. Here is the link for downloading all of the broadcast episodes.
