The Kings Arms, 1793: Fenwick weaver Thomas Barr tells of the first workers’ co-operative.

This short dramatised documentary tells the fascinating story of how 16 weavers from a small village in Ayrshire, Scotland became the founders of the Co-operative movement; an organisation with a global membership which is now in excess of 780 million, and one of the main sponsors of Fair Trade throughout the world.
