This month sees the start of a new nine-part series of the OU/BBC collaboration The Bottom Line on Radio 4, presented by OU honorary graduate Evan Davis.

The show will be looking at the business world post-pandemic from Thursday 28 May with academic consultants drawn from both the legal and business worlds. They are the Law School’s Professor of Law, Professor Simon Lee, and Dr Owain Smolovic Jones from the Business School, a Senior Lecturer in People Management and Organisation who is Director of the OU’s Research into Employment, Empowerment and Futures (REEF) academic centre of excellence.

It will be covering a variety of topics with top business leaders from Britain and around the world including: how did the economy move to recover after WWII?; saving companies; consumer habits post lockdown; China; and working from home.

The programme is broadcast at 20:30 every Thursday and repeated on Saturdays at 17:30. The podcast is available on the Radio 4 website following transmission.

You can find out more about The Bottom Line via the OpenLearn website which will have extensive content in connection with this and past series, as well as business in general.
