Dragon’s Den returns with Series 17 where budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multimillionaires. But will they be willing to invest their own cash?
This new comedy series follows the ironically named Leslie Winner, a well-meaning optimist who frequently finds himself in the midst of chaos, through a combination of silly decisions and tough luck. However, the pressure is on now for Leslie to finally pull himself together, as he prepares for his wedding to beloved fiancé Jemma and attempts to win over his skeptical father-in-law to be.
The series poses the question, by the end of the series "will Leslie be a winner or will his surname continue to be ironic?"
This new series sees award-winning documentary maker Stacey Dooley MBE spend a weekend with a range of extraordinary British families. It's a look at modern family life, behind the door of some of Britain's more unconventional households, with people leading lifestyles that some others might judge.
Featuring contemporary crime stories told with warmth and humour, McDonald & Dodds (previously known as Invisible) follows the investigations of a wildly mismatched detective duo, against the backdrop of Britain’s most traditional city. Newly promoted, the ambitious DCI McDonald has swapped the mean streets of London to leap up the career ladder in picturesque Bath. A tough, driven, battering ram of a cop, McDonald cracks cases through sheer force of will.
When she’s partnered with veteran sergeant Dodds, the pair instantly lock horns over their different approaches to policing – and to life. The tortoise to her hare, Dodds is quiet and unassuming, with a hidden talent for deciphering puzzles. But this new double act, thrown together with seemingly nothing in common, soon forge a rumbustious, entertaining and ultimately – give or take a few setbacks – effective partnership. Faced with a greed-fuelled murder in the upper echelons of Bath society and an unexplained death in a hospital for recovering addicts, McDonald and Dodds soon realise that their differences will be their strength when it comes to solving these gripping mysteries.
