That's rich! C4 focuses on recession-busting firms

Channel 4 turns the spotlight on three businesses that are flourishing in the economic downturn in its upcoming 'Who's Getting Rich?' season.

The three one-off documentaries include The Pawn Shop, which focuses on Surrey-based Prestige Pawnbrokers, run by former property developer James Constantinou (pictured). It deals in luxury items such as helicopters, Ferraris and designer handbags.

The Man Who Will Buy Anything focuses on real-life Del Boy Steve Elwis, who buys stock from shops and businesses that have gone bust and sells them on for a big profit, while Scrappers follows the larger-than-life characters who work at at south east London scrapyard, as well as those who come to sell their scrap.

The three documentaries will screen in September.
