Invisible hands

History Lab show

Summary: Where do jelly babies come from? Mass-produced things are all around us. But they all start with a single object. In this episode, Olivia goes looking for the patternmakers, whose invisible hands are the original creators of much of the stuff we use every day. They see a world no-one else can see. So why are they disappearing? And what will we lose when they are gone? Producer: Olivia Rosenman Collaborating historian: Jesse Adams Stein Host: Tamson Pietsch Executive Producer: Tom Allinson
