In Business - The Curse of the Bonus

THE CURSE OF THE BONUS It started off as a nice pat on the back for exceptional work. But then the bonus became some people's primal motivation..first in the financial markets in the City of London, then in big business, and then in the way public services are run too. Peter Day traces the rise and rise of the bonus culture, and asks how much damage it causes. Producer Caroline Bayley Editor Stephen Chilcott.
