Often when he just a boy

Harry Papadopoulos

Came to this country with nothing.

Harry was a grofter,

entering the restaurant

trade as a young man.

Must've used Euphemismus,

for Greek waiter isn't he?

Only joking Harry.

He then started the now

famous Papadopoulos

& Sons, doing all things Greek.

From Taramasalata to olive oil

and Frozen-Moussaka.

Which I must admit my wife and I are

a partial to in occasion.

Not one to settle, Harry's made the move

in to comercial property.

Where he's about to embark on

one of the most audacious development yet.

Papadopoulos Plaza.

A 2 Million square

foot redevelopment

in the heart of our great city.

Ladies and gentelmen, I give you

European Entrepeneur of the year:

Harry Papadopoulos.

That's lovely. Now,

stood out a bit for me.

Yeah that's nice.

Just look at the camera.

- Little bit more, perfect.

Now, touch the vase for me

if you don't mind.

Touch it?

What about...

Oh, Katie... you're

a P-P-P-Perv.

And you're the F-F-F-Freak,

- Shush!

Did you really work in a restaurant daddy?

- Long time ago. Touch it.

Guys, this was supposed to be celebration!

What's the greek word? Is it Hopa, hopa?

Touch the vase.


Congratulation from the Prime Minister.

Sir Derek Otterly was there today

mrs. Perrington?

Hmm... I don't know.

Derek? you must remember him.

He's been in to the house.

It's because they're all so dull

- Wait...

Gold doing well, Tech stocks down.

Oh no, I best not.

and a Philadelphus.

Cheers man, thank you.

and tribulation at the stock market.

Finish your supper young man.

Nanny P!

Eat up, or there's no

pudding, I made you a sponge

Two, four, eight, sixteen...

- Alright.

32, 64, 128...

- That's enough.

Something is happening with

Interbank London daddy!

Alright we'll talk about it tomorow.

Gonna be a long summer.

Dating into a business award

ceremony is hardly

a family day out

My suggest was

a Cottage in Lime Regis.

Dave, I need to

talk to you about James.

It's a... look, you really should be

doing that out in the back!

Yeah, sorry.

Look, it's a..

He needs to

complete his degree. And this..

...gardening, the

hortyculture, the plants...

Yeah yeah.

It's a huge distraction.

I was just opening

my own show the older days

Yeah well, I need him to study,

and you're diverting his attention.

And frankly it's

not what I pay you for.

Please don't be so childish.

You know, if you work for my

company, you probably be fired


Is anything else?

- No, that's it.

Good night, Mr. Papadopoulos.



Calm down.

You need to learn how to...

You really need to learn how to

express your self more calm..



James, can I come in?

"It's not the strongest to survive

nor the most intelegent,

but those adaptable to change."

Facinating. Charles Darwin.

Aw, look at that!

And that's...

Did you know, that

the average garden

contains over 3,5

million species?

No, I didn't.

Dad, I'm not going back to...

But it's only a year,

and then you got a law degree.

I have no intention of running...

Papadopoulos & Sons.

I can't even pronounce it.
