Dragons' Den


Peter Jones

The Dragons are back and the keen entrepreneurs can't wait to enter the Den to make a pitch for an investment that could make their business - and possibly change their lives.

Here on the Red Button we get to peek behind the scenes for the inside story on the investments made in the Den each week. What attracted the Dragons to the business? What did the other Dragons make of the deals? And why did the entrepreneurs take the deal they did in the Den?

  • Comment number 1.

    Hallo there, Sorcha, and thank you to the Team for this week's offerings.

    Please might we have the correct postal address on page 9990? The @BBCRedButton Twitter page says you're in Salford, so I reckon writing to BBC Audience Services would delay correspondence from viewers who have no internet access at home.
