The Prince of Wales Award for Innovation and Production with Judith Hann, Howard Stableford, Peter Macann and Maggie Philbin.
HRH The Prince of Wales, at his home in Gloucestershire, meets six new finalists including the inventor with a passion for roses and the engineer who dreamt of cutting tiles as easily as slicing bread.
But what can be done to help innovators turn their new ideas into commercial successes? Whether it's advice on patenting or where to find the finance, The Prince of Wales calls for a new approach to assisting British inventors get their ideas off the ground.
How well have last year's finalists fared? A bifocal contact lens, a lightweight cellphone, a test for hormones in the blood, an antilock brake system, or a meter that helps save electricity - which one will win the Prince of Wales Award for 1989?
