Trevor Philpott reports on Four Corners of the Marketplace 2 : The Money Garden
Stuttgart is the richest city in the richest country in the Common Market. Over the past 20 years the rate of industrial growth has been almost incredible - ten per cent in most of them, 20 per cent in the good ones.
They have created so many jobs that one in five has to be filled by an outsider - they're even.importing apprentices from Birmingham. Its people are mocked for their fussy habits and penny-pinching ways and envied for their solid, respectable wealth. But theirs is no ' where there's muck there's money' philosophy. They have made their money in a garden among vines and pine trees.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
