Sir Philip Green, the head of the Arcadia Group, talks to Tania Bryer about buying the firm in 2002 and the way he manages the different stores and brands that now fall under his remit.

Green bought Arcadia for £850 million and now owns retailers Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Topman, Topshop, Wallis and BHS.
