The luxury world of London's Liberty department store is the subject of a new behind-the-scenes documentary.

The three-part series, which has a working title of Making Liberty, follows staff as they prepare for their busiest time of year - the Christmas season.

The store, in the capital's Carnaby Street, has been transformed in recent years from near-bankruptcy to a commercial success story.

Channel 4's documentaries commissioning editor Emma Cooper said: "Liberty is the last bastion of eccentric, eclectic design and is jam-packed with a wonderful cast of colourful characters.

"Making Liberty will tell the everyday extraordinary stories of life within one of the world's best-loved and well-known stores."

The show will be broadcast in autumn.
