Fourth programme in the third series of eight programmes featuring company bosses who swap life in the boardroom for the often harsh realities of the shopfloor. David Sullivan, property millionaire and owner of the `Sport' newspapers, spends a week as a reporter at the group's Manchester office. His journalistic duties include the organisation of a topless photo shoot, interviewing a woman who claims that the late Elvis Presley fathered her child, and a "blind date" set up where the couple are naked when they meet for the first time.
