Meet the new Dragons entering the Den

The show that sees budding entrepreneurs entering the Den to pitch business ideas to the Dragons has unveiled a new line up.

This year’s new additions will join existing multi-millionaire Dragons Deborah Meaden and Peter Jones.  

An estimated £15m has been invested by the Dragons since the Den opened its doors a decade ago.

After Duncan Bannatyne, Kelly Hoppen and Piers Linney left the show, three new investors will join BBC Two’s flagship investment show.

Spanish Armada: Dan Snow talks about the 12 Days that saved England

Dan Snow

The Spanish Armada, much like the Boudica's uprising against the Romans, is a pillar of British history often referred to, but rarely fully understood.

Now a new three-part docudrama, starting this Sunday on BBC Two, aims to explain just what the armada was all about, from the international tensions that led to the conflict, to the efficacy of the weapons used.

Using CGI, dramatic reconstructions and recently discovered documents, Armada: 12 Days to Save England will focus on this short but decisive period of Tudor history.
