Ashley, this is precisely the thinking behind the programme. We want to
outline the often disastrous mistakes that we made that involved people
losing jobs and money. However we are more than willing to listen to people
who have taken on board those mistakes and are ensuring that there own plans
will not go belly up but will be a rip roaring success worthy of the Money

Would you care to be so frank in front of the camera about mistakes made and
the potential for learning?

If so drop me a line and we can talk over the phone,

>>>>the .com crash is all sound and thunder signifying nothing<<<<

But that's what the public, the television audience, the people who
advertising, want - sound and thunder, not rain. As marketing
sound and thunder is our job. It's what we do. We should be
this television person, not deriding him. I would much rather watch
television programme about failing dot-coms than a balanced portrait
modern business. The former wins awards, sells advertising, and gets
at 08:30 on Channel 4 with narration by Bob Cringely, whereas the
becomes part of the Money Programme on BBC2. Why? Because it's more
interesting to watch people blundering about, making mistakes, than
it is
watching organisations calmly go about their business.
