Back To The Drawing Board - BBC Radio Documentary Series - cheops
Poet and comedian Matthew Harvey enters the world of British inventors and discovers a fight to stop billions of pounds of ideas being lost abroad each year.
Five episodes of approximately fifteen minutes each.
Episode 1: Fire-proof grease, happy accidents and the doggy doorbell
The King's Cross fire and the doggy doorbell. Matthew Harvey explores the fascinating world of inventions.
The British genius is inventing, and over half the most important world beating ideas in the last century have come from this country. But Britain's other genius is letting them go. Now for the first time a new generation of inventors are learning how to hold onto their ideas, make them happen and not get ripped off.
Episode 2: Apart from creativity, great inventions call for patents and money
Being a great inventor doesn't make you rich and can cost you a lot of money say Kane Kramer, Trevor Bayliss and James Dyson.
When you have a great idea, don't tell anyone, at least until you have a patent. Inventors are forcing themselves to step off their creative cloud and understand how to make their ideas pay. So beware business sharks! - inventors now know how to read the small print.
Episode 3: Matthew Harvey looks at the characteristics of an inventor
The risks of debt and when to give up. Matthew Harvey looks at the characteristics of an inventor.
Episode 4: Many inventors have bad business skills, but one man is out to change perceptions
The men behind some of the best and craziest inventions are a unique breed - tenacious and a little unusual.
Episode 5: What happens when you give an inventor time, space and financial support?
What happens when you allow an inventor the space to invent? Matthew Harvey investigates.
It's a journey through the wonderful world of those who think differently from the rest of us and move our world forward against all the odds. Britain has the world's best inventors so why are we still letting billions of pounds in ideas go abroad every year?
