Evan Davis
Evan's guests this week talk about competitiveness, how the internet is going to transform the way we watch television, and just how good are we at acknowledging our failures?
In the week that Gordon Brown announced he's setting up an elite panel of top business people to advise him on how to boost Britain's economy, Evan Davis will be talking about competitiveness.

Evan and his guests will also be discussing what some are calling a revolution in the way we will watch television. BT are about to launch a service which will deliver TV channels over the internet: a video on demand service which would allow you to catch up on the television you missed over the last week. Evan will be asking whether BT can succeed at expanding into television.

And while he's got the CEO of BT and the head of Ryanair in the studio, Evan will be uncovering their worst-ever business decisions and reveal why they think failure is vital to success.
Evan's guests this week are:

BEN VERWAAYEN
Chief Executive of BT

JULIE MEYER
Founder and CEO of Ariadne Capital

MICHAEL O'LEARY
Chief executive of Ryanair

GREG DYKE
Chairman of Brentford FC and HIT Entertainment, former Director General of the BBC
About the programme
 
The Bottom Line cuts through the confusion of modern life to find out what's really important to consumers and businesses: the gimmicks, the people, the products - and the relationships.
