In each of the six programmes, a panel of some of the top businessmen in Britain, is assembled. They are confronted with situations which, although hypothetical, reflect accurately the kind of dilemma which they have probably at some time had to deal with. Keeping the discussion moving at a lively pace is an experienced moderator who tricks, cajoles or browbeats the often reluctant victim into making a commitment to one course of action or another. revealing how and why some of their decisions are made.
Made in 1980 this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The issues raised are timeless.
