Gus O'Donnell, the former head of the British Civil Service, returns to Whitehall to find out how his ex-colleagues are gearing up to take on what's been described as the Service's greatest challenge since the Second World War - making Brexit happen. Amongst others, he talks to Agata Gostyńska-Jakubowska, research fellow at the CER, Sir Paul Jenkins the former head of the Government's Legal Service, and the former EU Commissioner Jonathan Hill. He also talks to banks and retailers about how our often maligned bureaucrats will play a key role in shaping the future of UK PLC.
