Documentaries

Alexis Conran explores gambling addiction, an affliction that ruined his estranged father, and seeks to understand how and why this compulsion destroys people’s lives.

The Real Hustle is a British television series created by Objective Productions for BBC Three. The show demonstrates confidence and magic tricks, distraction scams and proposition bets performed on members of the public by Conran and Wilson with “sexy swindler” Jessica-Jane Clement. From series 10, entitled “New Recruits”, Jazz Lintott and Polly Parsons joined the hustlers.

Several episodes of the series state that all marks have been genuinely hoodwinked, and that any money lost is returned to them after filming. The BBC’s website states that “The marks featured in the show have no idea they are being scammed. They have either been set up by friends and family or think they are taking part in a different TV show.”

Following the conclusion of series 11, presenter Alexis Conran tweeted that there were “no plans for season 12″.

Bringing Down the House

“Describes a collection of math whizzes from M.I.T. and their unique rise and fall of their blackjack team. For two years in the early ’90s, the team reaped millions from casinos around the world by using their mathematics and card counting skills to change the odds of blackjack in their favor.”

Busting Vegas

“For nearly five years, he was known as the ‘Darling Of Las Vegas’; the biggest high roller to hit Sin City in decades, a hotshot, twenty one year-old kid with a seemingly unlimited bankroll and an even more unlimited lust for big money action. His name was Semyon Dukatch, and stories swirled in his wake. Some said he was a Russian arms dealer, others a pop star from Eastern Europe. But the truth was even more unlikely: he was a twenty-one year old graduate student who had a plan that would one day make him richer than anyone could possibly imagine. The Darling of Las Vegas quickly became a legend in the casino world. He is the only person banned from the island of Aruba. He was held, at gunpoint, in a cave in Monte Carlo and told that if he ever returned, he’d be murdered. And he made millions of dollars playing blackjack.”

The best of the factual entertainment series about scams and cons focusing on how easy it is to be scammed and conned in everyday life.

A world that’s more riot than profession, the trading floors of Chicago are a place where gambling your family’s mortgage is all in a day’s work. Now, when markets are unhinged, FLOORED offers a unique window to this lesser-known world of finance. Traders may not have degrees, but they’ve got guts, and penchant for excess. But like many aspects of our economy, technology is changing their business, and these eccentric pit denizens aren’t the type to take kindly to new tricks.

Computerised trading may take the emotion out of the job, but it may also take these old-timers out- they are dinosaurs in a young man’s game.

At a time when millions have lost fortunes in the fickle stock market and fear abounds about the faltering financial system, FLOORED is a gripping, honest look behind the curtain of the trading floor that few have ever seen.

Million Dollar Traders is a three part series that aired on the BBC about hedge fund manager Lex Van Dam who tries to teach ordinary people to become successful traders.

Many great trading lessons here.
