This week: The Inventors. Why Didn't I Think of That?
We don't know who invented the wheel, but Gillette was a travelling salesman; Dunlop was a vet; Biro was an artist. Their inventions made fortunes - and changed our lives.
But, today, the lone inventor-perhaps working away in a shed at the bottom of his garden - is often dismissed as a crank. Nowadays, most inventions come from research teams in big industrial firms. Nevertheless, there are still a few loners ... and Britain has always had more than her share. But, nowadays, do we care enough to encourage and back them with private or public funds? Too often, it seems, since the war, the products - and rewards - of our inventive genius have gone overseas.
In the last of the current series of The Man Alive Report, Harold Williamson meets British inventors who have spent years trying to convince manufacturers - who, too often, have strong and vested interests in the status quo. And Nick Ross talks with financiers and industrialists about the problems of the lone inventor in the hard commercial world.
