It may be a time of austerity in the UK but not so in the Dragons' Den... business is booming as the self-made multimillionaires return to the screen, ready to boost the economy by investing in the brightest and best of Britain's entrepreneurs. Whilst the rules of the series remain the same, you will notice one change... the arrival of new Dragon Hilary Devey, who joins the line-up of the five fearsome financiers. Having scrimped, saved and self-sacrificed in the haulage industry to make her own fortune, Hilary has her own views on the products and businesses brought before her, and she's more than happy to take on her rivals in order to get the best deal. 34-year-old Georgette Hewitt, from Kent, finds out exactly how nerve-wracking it can be to climb those famous stairs and pitch to the Dragons. It's a real battle to compose her nerves, but one she must win in order to tempt the multimillionaires to invest in her answer to a common birthday party headache familiar to all parents. Entrepreneurs often take advantage of the latest government schemes and incentives when building their business, which is exactly what Chris Hopkins from Yorkshire has done by capitalising on the solar power feed-in tariff. But when a Dragon knows your industry inside out it's not always what you want. Add into the mix the most unusual use you could ever think of for a plastic egg, a circus act that's sure to go with a bang, and a mind coaching massage service, and you've got a formidable showcase of the Great British spirit of invention and innovation. As ever Evan Davis is on hand to dissect the events, with further action and reaction available through the Red Button.

Dragons' Den is once more open for business, with the five multimillionaire investors ready and willing to invest in Britain's best commercial prospects. This time all the world's a stage and the Dragons merely players when two business partners from Lincolnshire pitch their pantomime company. But by turning the Den into a makeshift theatre, can they prove that show business and financial business really do mix? Elsewhere, one entrepreneur uses his pitch to tell the Dragons a story about growing up in South Africa, rather than concentrating on facts and figures, but how will that go down with the multimillionaires? Plus two joggers enter the Den to pitch their fast-paced delivery service; and a young mum offers a solution to everyone's outdoor toilet needs.

Series revealing the lives of the Dragons' Den dragons. How did they make their millions? And what are they really like? In the first of the five programmes focusing on the dragons, we are on an access-all-areas journey into the life of Theo Paphitis. We hear what Mrs P and the children, whose inheritance he keeps spending, think of him; we also get a quick peek into the luxurious lifestyle of a multi-millionaire businessman. While Theo rebuffs the notion that he is the classic rags to riches story, we gain a valuable insight into how his upbringing influenced his business career, get some tips on what it takes to be a future dragon and find out what his rival dragon investors really think of him. We also discover how some of his most memorable Den investments are getting on, including iTeddy and Ben the Bin, as well as hear from one entrepreneur who accepted an offer from Theo inside the Den, but in the end chose to walk away from the deal.

Season 6 - Episode 13 - Aired 11/23/2008

In the final programme of the series, it is Duncan Bannatyne's turn to open the door into his multi-millionaire world. Having grown up in the shadow of the shipyards of Clydebank, he makes an emotional visit to the local pub where he used to play dominoes with his father and talks about some of the events that shaped his life. We see a very different side to the tough-talking, plain-speaking dragon as he explains how his unconventional CV is ideal for anyone who wants to be a successful entrepreneur. We are with Bannatyne's family as they holiday in their luxurious villa in the Cote D'Azure, track his business career to find out where he made his millions, but also discover that his straight talking manner is unsuprisingly not confined to the den. We also trace some of his most memorable den investments and find out what happened once the deal was done - from the all-singing, all-dancing Razzmatazz franchises, through to the successful logistics company Igloo and the electrical wiring connector that is selling in the millions and has turned its inventor Peter Moule into a mini-dragon in his own right.
