The problems facing the pub sector were highlighted recently by the BBC's 'Money Programme', which examined how the role of supermarkets, the pubcos, government and the tightening economy were affecting the performance of the nation's boozers.

 

Presenter Max Flint interviewed a number of pub licensees, representatives from the British Beer & Pub Association, the Campaign for Real Ale, the pubco's and The Publican's own City & Business editor, Hamish Champ.

 

Flint met with licensees running ailing pubs, but also talked to people who had made a success of their businesses.
