In Made in Britain, a new series co-produced by the BBC and The Open University, Evan Davis tours the UK, visiting a variety of companies to discover why manufacturing accounts for around 12 per cent of the UK's modern economy.
Inspired by the series, we've developed Visible Trade, an exciting data visualisation tool that allows you to explore 20 years' worth of the UK's imports and exports. You can hone in on particular years, commodities and countries to uncover surprising stories which you can then embed into your blog, social networks, academic essays and more.

Made In Britain airs on BBC Two at 9pm on Monday 4th July. For broadcast details, visit bbc.co.uk.
