This show is scheduled to air on the BBC early next year. Looks interesting and a nice replacement for WSW ...... This appeared in the Telegraph today. Wannabe traders are to battle it out under the tutelage of former Goldman Sachs director Lex Van Dam in a new TV series to be aired early next year by the BBC. More than 5,000 candidates are understood to have applied to star in the programme, which is being produced under the working title of Traders. While the programme will draw parallels with Sir Alan Sugarâs The Apprentice, Traders will have a different format, with more than one winner. Mr Van Dam is a former head of equity proprietary trading at Goldman Sachs and a fund manager at London-based GLG Partners. He holds a masters in investment theory and econometrics.
