It is unlikely that colleagues from outside the UK picked up on a recent series in Radio 4, conducted by long time FT collumnist Lucy Kellaway. The series deals with the rise of the manager and office working in general (named "History of Office Life"). This is an item that accompanies the series (published in BBC Magazine):
