The coronavirus pandemic and the associated global economic lockdown have had a dramatic impact on businesses across the UK, perhaps none more so than on the aviation industry and airports like Gatwick, usually the UK's second busiest. The consequences, though, go far beyond the confines of the airport. Tens of thousands of jobs in the wider economy and in nearby towns, like Crawley, are under threat. One report has suggested that, because of its dependence on Gatwick, Crawley could be the worst affected urban centre in the UK. John Murphy speaks to a range of businesses in Crawley during this extraordinary period, to see if and how they can survive. Presenter: John Murphy Producer: Darin Graham
