The Apprentice: the TV Programme

The Apprentice is a successful BBC TV programme where people compete in an attempt to convince business tycoon Sir Alan Sugar and some other members of a jury that they deserve the chance of an apprenticeship with multi millionaire Sir Alan Sugar. The 9th edition of this programme which started in 2005 is about to start in March 2013.

Candidates are given assignments and they have to prove they have what it takes to make it to the top. During the course of the programme they suffer different forms of humiliation by the invectives of Sir Alan and the tricks of the other competitors. It makes for compulsive viewing; to see how far ambition can push people.
