All clips of interviews included in this section are excerpts of far fuller oral history interviews with each of the 30 industrialists. As well as recording how the interviewee joined their particular area of the manufacturing industry, each interview details the person’s working life or entrepreneurial experience. As a result, the interviewees not only talk about the achievements they remain most proud of, but also the difficult times they often lived through. In doing so, they give us a uniquely insightful analysis of their industry and their own ethics and values.
