Duration: 1 hour

Britain's largest minicab company, Addison Lee, has is testing a revolutionary scheme that aims to transform its employees' work/life balance. The company is going to do the unthinkable and open its doors to nine babies. However instead of being placed in a creche or a nursery, their parents are challenged to work with them right next to their desks.

With childcare costs in Britain going through the roof, the parents dream of saving money and spending more time with their kids. To make that a reality though, each must successfully juggle caring for their baby with the rigours of their day job, from the call centre to customer service and sales to accounts.

Babies and business sound like a recipe for chaos - but are babies a formula for success?
