Game Shows Game
Den is a venture-capitalist television programme
that originated in Japan where the format is owned
by Sony. The format, which now airs internationally,
consists of entrepreneurs pitching their ideas
in order to secure investment finance from business
experts — the "Dragons".
contestants are usually product designers, who
have what they consider to be a viable and potentially
very profitable business idea, but who lack funding
and direction. They pitch their idea to five rich
entrepreneurial businesspeople, the eponymous
"dragons". They have, before the show,
named an amount of money that they wish to get,
and the rules stipulate that if they do not raise
at least this amount from the dragons, they get
nothing. In return, the contestant gives the dragons
a percentage of the company's stock, which is
the chief point of negotiation.
the contestant has made their presentation, the
dragons then probe the idea further, often revealing
an embarrassing lack of preparation on the part
of the contestants or uncovering troubling facts,
and consequently rejecting the investment. It
is common in a show to see five or six ideas and
only one (or possibly none) that attracts the
Den series have been produced in Japan, the United
Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Canada,
the Netherlands, Finland and lately Nigeria.
Money no Tora (Money Tiger), this original version
was created by and aired on Nippon Television
from 2001 to 2004. It was the first entertainment
programme in the history of Japanese television
that dealt with the concept of business investment.
During its three year run, as many as 16 business
executives appeared in the programme as Tigers.
the UK, Dragons' Den is broadcast on BBC Two and
is hosted by former BBC economics editor Evan
Davis. The second series ended on 20 December
2005, with a "Where Are They Now" episode,
giving details of the outcomes of some of the
ventures from the first series, shown the following
day. A third series commenced on BBC Two on 3
August 2006. Continuing the trend for the series
finale, another "Where Are They Now"
episode for the third series also aired on 20
September 2006, with a further follow-up episode
broadcasting in October. The programme was nominated
for an RTS award and two BAFTA awards in 2007.
The theme tune and background music of Dragons'
Den were composed by John Watt.
2005 Rachel Elnaugh's company went into administration;
the remaining assets were bought by two of Elnaugh's
fellow Dragons' Den judges (Peter Jones and Theo
Paphitis). Although Elnaugh was at the helm before
and at the time of the company's failure, she
blames the problems on the actions of the last
CEO whom she appointed in 2002, whilst she took
a non-executive role.
a result of disputes with various Dragons, and
the resulting uncomfortable position of the BBC
if it allowed a perceived "failed" business
person to be on a business panel, she agreed to
leave the Dragons' Den panel.
September 2006, in an investigation by the Sunday
Mirror newspaper, it was claimed that most of
the deals were unfulfilled after the programmes
were shot. The article claimed that the Dragons
either pulled out of the deals over minor technicalities,
deliberately offered heavily unfavourable terms
to the entrepreneurs in an effort to make them
withdraw, or simply broke off all contact with
them after the recording. The UK Dragons defended
their record, with Duncan Bannatyne saying: "We
don't hand over money to people who don't tell
the truth.", while Theo Paphitis added: "I
kept up my end of the bargain. The show is not
about a cash prize, it is about us pledging to
invest. But people must tell the truth. Simple."
A BBC spokesman said: "After the initial
agreement is made on camera, both parties enter
a period of due diligence. Sometimes during this
period the deals fall through."In fact, the
BBC has never made a secret of this, with follow-up
programmes openly admitting that many deals ultimately
was announced on 21 May 2007, that Richard Farleigh
had been dropped from the series. The Daily Mail
suggested he may have been dropped in order to
have a new dragon from an ethnic minority. Farleigh
said, "It would be disappointing if that
was the reason - rather than anything fundamental
- if it was because I was the wrong colour. I
don't know why this has happened and I am very
disappointed and bemused - I wasn't expecting
it because all the feedback I got was very positive.
I had even moved back to the UK to focus on commitments
for the show. I am gutted that I have not been
invited back." James Caan, a venture capitalist
and founder of Hamilton Bradshaw, replaced Farleigh
in series five.
