Gerry's Big Decision
Channel 4 - 9 July 2009
Gerry Robinson's mission to help struggling companies is absolutely of the moment. Around the country, businesses are staring into the abyss, but at least the ones in this series get the benefit of Sir Gerry's laser-sharp advice, generally couched in the manner of a kindly but disappointed headmaster. And it's not just advice: he has money to invest, potentially, that would make the difference between bankruptcy and survival.
A lot hangs in the balance for tonight's two firms, a Devon pie-maker and Britain's oldest major chair manufacturer. The latter is sleepwalking towards the edge of a financial cliff with the chairman and MD at loggerheads and the fate of an entire Lancashire village on the line. Gerry has his work cut out - and a tough call to make: is either business worth saving? It's a hugely engaging programme with grown men in tears, clashing egos and big issues in the air to do with trust and denial. "They're heading for the rocks and hoping something will happen," observes Robinson. "What generally happens in those circumstances is that you hit the rocks."
