    I hope this isn't outside of the scope of this forum.



    What I'm looking for is a very educational film/documentary/series about business or management consulting, where an older stern gentleman, "The Consultant" solves his customer's problems.



    The episode I recall is one where the Consultant does a job for a car retailer (or something car-related), whose family business was going bad. He proposes that the female workers get more responsibility despite being in a traditional male dominated business.



    I've tried searching for everything I could think of with regard to this series/film. I'm quite sure it was British though, hence I posted it on this forum.



    If you have any idea whatsoever about this series, I'd be really grateful!

    I agree with the above. The series "Troubleshooter" (1990) was the one where he visited various companies and told them what they were doing wrong and how they could improve. The advice was not always welcomed - and there was one about a car factory.

    John Harvey-Jones visited the Morgan car factory in the series Trouble Shooter and suggested that they change the manufacturing process to remove some of the hand crafted elements of their car making. Morgan declined and have gone from strength to strength
