Angela Jain: Follow the job, not the money

Angela Jain in conversation with Boyd Hilton

Why a career in TV is for everyone

“It’s important to demystify television and make you realise that TV is a great place to work…

“As a second generation British-born Indian no one in my family had ever worked in the media before. Of my siblings two are lawyers and one is an environmental scientist.

“Ideally my folks would have liked me to be a good Asian doctor but I’m afraid I wasn’t bright enough. I was quite musical but my parents didn’t want me to do anything that was to do with the creative businesses.

The UK version of the show, which was presented by Dale Winton, ran for seven series between 1993 and 2001 on ITV, before being revived for a one off-series in 2007.

The supermarket-based show sees teams answering questions and puzzles based on the products and merchandise of supermarkets around the world. It culminates in an all-or-nothing trolley dash through the aisles, as the finalists hunt down items hidden among the supermarket shelves to win a big cash prize.
