Gerry Robinson's Car Crash

Sir Gerry Robinson, the UK's foremost business troubleshooter, takes a look under the bonnet of Britain's troubled car industry. Sir Gerry gets stuck in on the production line at Nissan's Sunderland factory, finding that even this, Britain's most efficient car plant, is struggling. He finds out what the industry must do for itself and what the bosses and experts say the Government needs to do to keep the business alive.

Searching for short- and long-term answers to the car industry's problems, Sir Gerry test-drives the world's first electric sports car, challenges Lord Mandelson on the Government's efforts to lead Britain's car industry through the recession, and asks billionaire inventor Sir James Dyson the really big question - whether Britain should be in the business of manufacturing at all.
