Sir Terence Conran: I gave away my fortune

As a new exhibition opens to mark his 80th birthday, Sir Terence Conran says he does not have a vast fortune to show for his 60-year design career.

Despite being credited with transforming the British way of life through his design, Sir Terence says he has "worried at times" that he has not made enough money, in an interview with Radio 4's Front Row programme.

He says he has given a lot of his fortune to the Design Museum, which he founded.
