Businessmen are divided on the lengths to which they would go to hunt a “mole” leaking important commercial information. The use of lie detectors to investigate industrial espionage is discussed. The programme also reveals that they would dismiss a senior executive who publicly supported the Campaign for Homosexual Equality and that they would regard the entertainment of overseas clients with prostitutes to win orders as an acceptable form of business expense.
Made in 1980 this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The issues raised are timeless.
