Is it possible to engineer an absolutely safe world? Today’s scientists and engineers are developing new tools and gaining knowledge to keep us safer than ever before.

On Sunday, November 3 at 7:00 pm, Secrets of Selfridges takes viewers to the place where luxury shopping was born. The brain child of an American — Harry Gordon Selfridge, whose life is depicted in the ongoing hit PBS show MASTERPIECE “Mr. Selfridge” — Selfridge & Co. spurred a revolution in the way Londoners shopped, introducing a new American retail model that made shopping less a practical pursuit and more a luxurious adventure. Keen to put the shopper’s experience above anything else, it was Selfridge who adopted the philosophy that “The customer is always right,” a mantra for shops all over the world.
