I watched the BBC's documentary - Britain at the Bookies - yesterday and thought it was insightful.
The programme looked at all aspects of Britain's gambling industry from the people right at the top all the way down to the token mug punter who wastes his money on the in-store video roulette machines.
That's quite a spectrum, eh?
The two parts I found especially interesting were the work carried out by the traders as they try to get a grasp of the markets. Then there was also Coral betting office manager, Tony, who came across as a likeable boss who loved his job. The epitome of a company man.
It's a three part series, so I'll be sticking with it. It might not be for everyone. I've read a few reviews since watching it and some are claiming it wasn't any good. I suppose I liked it because it's a subject I am keen on.
Each to their own.
