WORLD DRESS
According to Robert Ross, author of new book Clothing: A Global History, leaders of the most powerful countries in the world have one thing in common: their choice of clothes. Laurie Taylor is joined by Dr Robert Ross and social anthropologist Henrietta Moore to discuss the world domination of the western business suit

RELATIONSHIPS AT WORK
Kathleen Riach, lecturer at the University of Essex talks about her joint research on work place romance. The literature of ‘Human Resource Management’ warns against the destabilising effects of romance in the office, how sexual relationships can lead to biased decisions, teasing, jealousy, and harassment claims. But are there worries justified? And do people pay the slightest heed?
