Quick on the Draw

Quick on the Draw: Peter Day visits two rival German pencil companies in Nuremberg, discussing the success of German industry and the viability of Europe as a single economy.

In an age of high technology communications, two long-established companies in a single German city are still battling each other for supremacy in a global marketplace ... in pencils. In Nuremberg Peter Day asks Faber-Castell and Staedtler how they both stay sharp ... and finds out what light (and shade) they can throw on the success of German industry and the viability of Europe as a single economy.
Producer: Caroline Bayley.
