Preview – The Rise and Fall of Nokia


The Nokia company has been around since the mid-19th century, but it is only in recent decades that it became globally famous.

It was thanks to its mobile phones, complete with Snake and THAT ring tone, that Nokia became such a famous company, but then it all went wrong. In 2014 the mobile phone business was bought out by Microsoft, and now Nokia no longer makes mobiles in its home country of Finland. This documentary charts how this success and calamity came into being.

The Rise and Fall of Nokia is on BBC Four at 21.00.
