In 2005 broadcaster Peter Day produced a radio series looking at a future where global economic powers will include Brazil, Russia, India and China (the BRICs). For the Powerhouse Museum ‘Smart works’ symposium, he follows up this theme to consider the future for design and the handmade.
Peter Day has presented ‘In business’ for the BBC since 1988, and ‘Global business’ on the BBC World Service every weekend. He is part of a team ‘making business programmes for listeners who did not realise they were interested in business at all’. ‘The Times’ has described ‘In Business’ as ‘the best business-related programme on TV or radio’.
