Another chance to see a film broadcast in 1990 about a husband and wife who decided to go into the airline business. At the time Suckling Airways operated from Cambridge to Manchester and Amsterdam with just one 20-seater plane. Nowadays the airline has five planes, with another soon to be delivered; it also operates from Luton, and has extended its routes to take in Waterford and Paris. This film was made by Prix Italia award-winning Frank Cvitanovich , who died last month, and is being shown as a tribute.

First in a series of six programmes in which bosses turn a video camera on themselves.

What does it take for a woman to survive and prosper in the fiercely competitive man's world of British industry, and what are the effects on Jan's own life?
