'Corner shops helped us to integrate'

The demise of the corner shop has been predicted many times but, far from disappearing, business is predicted to expand over the next five years.

Lord Dolar Popat, who had his first shop in the 1970s and is now a multi-millionaire, talked to the BBC's Babita Sharma about the early days.

Booze, Beans & Bhajis: The Story of the Corner Shop is on BBC4 on Monday, 19 December at 22:00.
