A weekly programme which focuses on people and the situations which shape their lives.

It sounds almost like a letter home from a little boy at prep school. It is, in fact, the often-rewarded cry of a pair of wildly successful American millionaires. In fifteen years Kemmons Wilson and his business partner Wallace Johnson have built the biggest hotel chain in the world - accumulating personal fortunes of £30 million each in the process. Both devout church-goers, they have clung to the simplicity of their cotton state beginnings. To direct their hundred companies from Memphis, Tennessee, they work seven days a week, fly everywhere by private jet - and open a new hotel every two days. They also combine business and God with a fervour unique to the American Bible Belt.
