Question Name this program please - "business fixer guy" on bbc2/ch4, 5 yrs ago

Anyone remember this ? I can't recall the name of the guy or the program !

BBC2 or Channel 4, UK programme, about 5-7 years ago, maybe on at about 8-9pm.

I can picture him - oldish guy, not slim, posh speaker, tweed jacket, head screwed on, sent in as a 'fixer' to businesses that were on their last legs. Went to several different businesses in the series, iirc.

He's sort of a male version of the "2 Fat Ladies", but without the cooking !

I can't recall his real name - it's being 'blocked' by "Lee Harvey Oswald" so it might be something like this !

Help !!!!!11111

A really enjoyable show, and at the time a thoroughly original idea.

How did you manage to get the date wrong by 15 years! I quiet enjoyed the Gerry Robinson programmes, especially the original one. Wasn't there one with the bloke from Dragons Den where he got them all to write stuff on a wall?
