In second episode Down To Business the Hammonds face their first board meeting where Edward tries to persuade the rest of the new directors to sell out their shares to him but unfortunately for him all three of them want to stay on at Hammond, realising that they actually have the chance to accomplish something tangible.
Brian’s wife Ann spends much of this episode doing her best to cajole him into selling his shares but to no avail. 17 year old Barbara is reacting badly to the news that her mother had a long term affair with a married man of which she is the product.
