Dragons' Den

A couple of hopefuls put on those excruciating pantomime sales pitches that would-be entrepreneurs think are so attention-grabbing.

They aren’t; they’re just embarrassing. But in an odd way they get you on side; after all, if anyone is willing to humiliate themselves to such an extent on national television, their heart must be in the right place. Like the ex-DJ with the supposedly revolutionary gel-insoles to help ease the dancing feet of high-heeled women. He even brings a little mobile disco to set the right atmosphere.

Then there’s the uncle and nephew with their packaging ideas. They don’t put on a panto, but you will want to rush in to rescue them when they’re paralysed by clearly terrible nerves and things start to go wrong.

About this programme

11/12. Two Berkshire design graduates pitch their gadget for carrying a round of drinks back from the bar and a former DJ from south Wales hopes his role-play disco will be the best way to demonstrate his product to relieve sore feet. Other ideas include a website for retired people, a gizmo to reduce food waste, and a car that is also a barbecue. Evan Davis presents.
