The acts and businesses he deals with are Irish singer and actress Samantha Mumba, husband and wife opera business Opera Anywhere, heavy metal band Saxon, radio station Big L 1395, Deighton Working Men's Club and Paulo's, Britain's oldest circus. He dealt with all simultaneously over a six-month period, but they are each given a separate show in the series.

Much of the show revolves around the battle between Goldsmith and the people who he is trying to help. The acts are often reluctant to take on board his advice,[1] or even to change at all.[2] Goldsmith is often frustrated at the slow pace at which those he is advising are progressing.

Viewing figures

The show performed poorly, drawing fewer than 1 million viewers[3] (only 4% of viewers). Although the first four episodes were broadcast in a primetime 9pm slot, the final episodes of the series were shown late at night.
