The Night-time Economy

Much has been said of a '24 hour society', but just how successful is the UK's night-time economy? Does it really exist? It's estimated that over 7 million people in the UK are economically active at night, but are they doing anything other than drinking and eating? Shop Talk investigates the breadth of trade taking place in the early hours, and whether it's a good thing for businesses - and their employees - to burn the candle at both ends.

Guests:

Melanie Howard
The Future Foundation

Leon Kreitzman
Author of The 24 hour Society and Rhythms of Life

Martin Baker
UK Managing Director, Fedex Kinko's

Joel Cadbury
CEO Longshot PLC, owner of Vingt Quatre restaurant

Professor Dick Hobbs

Frank Rejwan
