Published Tuesday 20 August, 2013

Lord Digby Jones is set to become a TV troubleshooter hosting a BBC2 3 – part series looking at the state of the British manufacturing industry.

Tom Edwards, BBC 2’s commissioner said “There are only a tiny handful of people with the expertise, personality and profile that could attempt a challenge like this. I am delighted Lord Digby has agreed to take it on”  

In reply Digby said:

"I am thrilled to be making this series of programmes. It is vital that a wider audience understands how business ticks, especially smaller businesses where from will come so much of the growth & employment in our economy over the next few years. I look forward to drilling down into businesses, asking the awkward questions, thinking the unthinkable & constructively challenging the status quo. I want to get the audience thinking & asking questions as well, and hopefully the younger members of local communities will also find something in the programmes for them to see why developing skills is so important. Bring it on!"
