Is corporate charity work all about looking good rather than doing good?

Peter White presents a special edition assessing some of the causes taken up by big brands including:

The bank promising to teach everyone about technology, the baker funding breakfast clubs for school children and the high street cobbler actively recruiting convicted criminals.

We examine the progress of a plan to improve the safety of clothing factories supplying UK high streets following the deaths of over a thousand workers in Bangladesh.

And we hear from a former 'big oil' employee who now advises other firms on corporate responsibility.

Presenter: Peter White
Producer: Jon Douglas.
