Mary Portas: Honorary graduate talks pants in her new TV series

In the middle of the worst recession since the war, retail guru Mary Portas (honorary graduate of the school) believes a a window of opportunity has opened to restore some life back to British manufacturing.
Transport costs and foreign labour costs are rising, so Mary's heading to Middleton, Greater Manchester, to set up a new production line for British-made knickers.
Mary wants consumers to understand the value of buying British: skills, UK jobs, pride in our manufacturing heritage.
It will be a challenge for Mary, who normally frequents an altogether different shop-floor. She not only needs to breathe life back into a mothballed factory, she has to persuade the old seamstresses to teach the new recruits, and track down some of the last fabric suppliers in the country.
Will she pull it off, or will her first ever foray into manufacturing be simply a brief encounter?
