The contestants came from various backgrounds, including a fight promoter, a day trader, an IT/banking recruitment consultant, a working mother, a retired IT engineer and a student, among others. During the series hedge fund manager Lex van Dam gave the contestants $1 million of his own money to trade for 2 months. Professional trader Anton Kreil, was appointed as the manager of the group. The three-part BBC series, narrated by Andrew Lincoln, was a part of the "City Season" programming on the BBC. It aired on BBC 2 in the UK at 9pm on Monday evenings between 12 and 27 January 2009.

Outstanding - a Real Trading environment
9 November 2013 | by david_e_coeSee all my reviews

Matches the real experience of working in an actual trading environment. Demonstrates why trading is not for everyone. Essential viewing for any aspiring or current traders. Focuses on stock/share trading but takes account of worldwide events, currencies etc. Trades are not executed directly but rather through a dealer. Platform and analysis is live real-time, and the lifestyle is also not for everyone. Hours are London time in office 6am prior to open through to close of the after market at 9pm! Team review of market and strategy with individual trade selection by each trader. The traders develop in different ways, some crash unexpectedly and others are just great. The interactions of the traders and their reactions to the stress of having to perform makes this a compelling three part series.
