British industry tomorrow's work will be just like today's. Mindless.... repetitive.... demoralising. But deep in the 'pot bank' they're trying to reshape working lives.

But will this really improve work and conditions on the shopfloor, or is it just subtle psychology designed to boost productivity?
Open Space goes to the Potteries to find out how shopfloor and management approach the new tomorrow. Producer JEREMY GIBSON
