The 20th-century obsession with efficiency owes much to American industrialist Frederick Winslow Taylor, whose time-and-motion studies sparked revolution in factories worldwide.

By 1911, his methods had caused such disruption that he was forced to stand before a special congressional committee in Washington to defend his life's work.

`The Time and Motion Man' is based on transcripts of the trial and presents the story of an individual who put the system first.

With Colin Stinton as Frederick Winslow Taylor and Shane Rimmer as chairman W B Wilson.
