Evan Davis and guests examine the relationship between company chairman and chief executive. They also discuss the merits of youth and age in the workplace.

The view from the top of business, presented by Evan Davis. The Bottom Line cuts through confusion, statistics and spin to present a clearer view of the business world through discussion with people running leading and emerging companies.

Evan and a panel of guests from the world of digital publishing, security and spirits discuss the special relationship between the two people at the top of a company: the chairman and chief executive. Is it a recipe for tension, or a sensible balancing of responsibilities?

The panel also discusses the merits of youth versus experience in the workplace. What qualities do young people bring to a business compared with their older colleagues - or is there no difference?

Evan is joined in the studio by Seamus McBride, President and Chief Executive of spirits company Bacardi Limited; Nick Buckles, Chief Executive of security company G4S; and Anthony Habgood, Chairman of digital publisher Reed Elsevier and the hotel, coffee shop and restaurant company Whitbread.
