It seems strange this three-part documentary about Ikea should air so shortly after the death of the store’s founder Ingvar Kampard last week.

This series follows what goes on behind the scenes of the Swedish shop. We follow a designer who has been invited to design a new sofa-bed, while some new Sheffield managers travel to the shop’s hometown of Almhult to learn more about the values of the company.

Flatpack Empire is on BBC Two at 22.00.
