Selfridge's legacy celebrated at flagship London store

Harry Gordon Selfridge is the man said to have revolutionised the shopping experience for Londoners and now a new television series tells the history of his Oxford Street department store.

This month, the store revives one of Selfridge's early ideas and so BBC London's Arts Correspondent Brenda Emmanus talks to Shopping, Seduction & Mr Selfridge author Lindsay Woodhead about his legacy.
