Evan Davis looks at the explosive growth of Britain's services economy in the third and final part of the series. Modern Britain has undergone a remarkable change in recent years: shifting from manufacturing to services. But is this good or bad news?

Evan travels to Dubai to explore how our service expertise has been successfully exported around the world and, back home, sees how British services make a fortune by attracting wealthy customers to the UK. Evan shows how architects, communication specialists, universities and even estate agents together contribute billions of pounds to the economy.

But can we entirely rely on services to help us pay our way in the world? And what have been the social consequences of our great services experiment? Show less
