Jack and Victor face the prospect of a gloomy
Hogmanay stuck in the lift at Osprey Heights, and console themselves by recalling New Years past. As the clock ticks down to 2007, Winston is also in a reminiscent mood, and takes refuge in memories of a legendary holiday season when Craigland really knew how to throw a party.

Fergus O'Brien 's documentary - a spin-off from the BBC series - follows the trials and triumphs of husband-and-wife entrepreneurs John and Ann Armstrong as they run their Coventry double glazing company. The pair display the ambition and drive to make their business a real success, but their sales team will require serious motivation if they are to make the dream a reality.
